Ditch The Plastic Straws For Edible Straws!

It's time to help save our planet and give up using plastic straws in your drinks.
Plastic straws are incredibly bad for our ocean and kill millions of marine life.
Let's discuss how and why you should replace your plastic straws, with edible straws!

Why plastics straws are bad for our planet

Plastic straws are extremely hurtful to our ocean.

Millions of straws end up in the ocean, polluting the water and killing our marine life.

If this doesn't change, by the year 2050 there will be more plastic in the ocean than fish!

Plastic straws are difficult to recycle because of how light they weigh; they easily drop out of the sorting machines and mix with other materials.

Plastic does not biodegrade, it breaks down into smaller pieces called 'microplastics' which is even more damaging to the marine life. 

How you should replace the plastic straws
