Plastic straws are killing the world

Plastic straws are killing the world

Plastic straws are a big problem world wide and as a result they are being banned and other options are being put in their place.
Australians use about 10 million straws every day, or 3.5 billion a year.
Most are used just once - for around 15-30 minutes, after which they are thrown away!


Plastic Straws are the 12th most common item reported by Clean Up volunteers.

They represent 7.5% of all reported plastics - with 7,304 reported from rubbish recorded last Clean Up Day. That figure has doubled over the last two years.

And they are everywhere - in our parks, picnic grounds, along streets, in and on our beaches.

So what can you do about it.

Well we have some really cool metal retractable straws that have their own case and you can attach to your key ring and take with you anywhere.

It come with its own cleaner so you don't have to worry about how clean it is for you next use.

Be part of the solution and make a difference in the world.
