"What's another plastic straw?" Said 8 billion people. We throw out enough plastic straws as a global society that you could build a suspension bridge to the moon and back, as well as a fast food restaurant about halfway there for needed travel snacks. We don't know if that's actually true, but probably. Plastic straws take up to 1000 years to break down, and a variety of sea life are particularly bothered by that.

HOW DO STAINLESS STEEL STRAWS - REUSABLE METAL DRINKING STAWS WITH CLEANER BRUSHES HELP THE ENVIRONMENT?
Let's take the United States of America for example: they use 500 million plastic straws everyday. As the US National Park Service says, this is enough to fill 125 school buses with plastic straws every day. Most straws are too light to make it through mechanical recycling, contaminating recycling loads, and importantly ending up as garbage in our oceans. Having metal straws on hand, or maybe a portable one in your bag, might reduce the number of straws that end up turtle's noses.
