By the year 2050 there’s estimated to be more plastic in the ocean than fish. In the United States alone, over 500 million plastic straws are used. The practicality of the plastic straw is absurd – It takes about 20 minutes for someone to finish a drink with a straw, yet when the straw it tossed it will take up to 1000 years to decompose. How bizarre it that?

There are so many reusable straws available on the market. Even plastic ones, but still reusable, the glass straws and finally the paper straws, which are indeed need to be bought by every store instead of using plastic. Otherwise if people ask for a straw and not taking a drink to go the best options coffee shops need to use are glass straws. Better just keep one on hand.
