In the US, it is estimated that people use around 500 million straws every day. A recent study indicates that at least 8.3 million plastic straws pollute the beaches around the world.

When these plastic straws that end up in landfills and are not managed properly, they are carried out into our waterways, oceans, and seas and cause harm to marine life. It’s estimated that as many as 30% of turtles and 70% of seabirds have ingested some plastic that ended up in the ocean.

Did you know plastic straws are Non-recyclable?

There is a common misconception that plastic straws are recyclable.  Although the plastic they are made from is technically recyclable, they are not accepted in curbside recycling programs. Plastic straws are too lightweight to make it through the mechanical recycling sorter. They drop through sorting screens and mix with other materials and are too small to separate, contaminating recycling loads or getting disposed as garbage.  Because straws are non-recyclable, they end up landfills. Internationally they frequently end up in rivers and oceans.
