We use plastic straws each day and are then disposed of after a single use. In only the past twenty years, people have come to expect plastic straws in every drink, in an example of extreme waste being generated for convenience. These short-lived tools are usually dropped into a garbage can with no further thought, instantly becoming a source of plastic pollution.
The consumption of 500 million single-use plastic straws a day is enough straws to wrap around the circumference of the earth 2.5 times per day. Currently, it is nearly impossible to recycle plastic straws, which often end up in a dump. Plastic straws are also swept away by winds and end up in waterways, and eventually into the oceans. Plastic straws are confused as food by fish and seabirds. In a recent study, it was estimated that approximately 60% of seabirds currently have plastic in their stomachs, and by 2050, 99% percent of seabirds will have plastic in their stomachs.
