The Last Plastic Straw

Only a fraction of plastic straws given out with drinks are recycled due their small size. The rest end up in landfill, or in rivers and ultimately the sea, where they are the fifth most common item of rubbish and are capable of harming marine life. They entangle marine animals and are consumed by fish. They are used for 20 minutes on average, but take up to 500 years to break down. We have chosen to join #thelaststraw movement and provide biodegradable paper straws.
