Plastic pollution is not only harmful to our environments, but also to our health. Several organizations across the country have already raised awareness of the environmental impact that plastic straws and single use plastics have on our planet. These plastic straws break up into extremely small particles that end up releasing harmful chemicals and toxins into our air, water, and soil.

It is estimated that the United States goes through 390 million to 500 million plastic straws every single day. These plastic straws then go on to pollute our landfills, waterways, and oceans and leave behind toxic microplastics.
