Humans around the world use 500 million straws, daily. Made from petroleum, once discarded, single use plastic straws take 200 years or more to breakdown, adding to plastic debris in our landfills and the plastic already covering 1/3 of our oceans.
Join EarthX as we turn awareness into action. Become a hero for our planet. Sign the pledge to STRIKE OUT STRAWS and agree to stop using single-use plastic straws.
Or try an alternative:
- Biodegradable straws which decompose in 30-60 days
- Invest in a reusable straw
