Glass straws are proving to be the perfect alternative to single use plastic straws, but have you thought about why you should swap to a glass straw when you reach for your favourite beverage?
Would you believe that enough plastic straws are produced annually to fill over 46 thousand full sized buses! Each time you use a reusable glass straw it means one less plastic straw ends up in landfill or in our precious oceans.
Plastic straws are always in the top 10% of items collected during beach clean-ups. Up until 100 years ago nobody used a straw to drink their tasty beverage, which proves they are not essential to the average persons survival, but of course we can't outlaw drinking straws as long as there are people that want to use a drinking straw. We just need to find alternatives that do not impact our planet the way plastic straws currently do. A reusable glass straw has the potential to replace thousands of plastic straws!
Just how many straws are we talking about? Well, as of March 2008, as stated on their website, McDonald’s serves an average of 52 million meals per day! How many of those served do you think were given a plastic straw? Remember, this is just from McDonalds which helps us realise the bigger picture.
