Paper straws have now replaced all plastic straws at all Sandals resorts across the Caribbean.

Millions of straws are used worldwide per year.

A person uses 38,000 straws in a lifetime.

A straw takes 100 years to degrade.

Straws affect thousands of animals in the sea.

See how a plastic straw prevented a turtle from breathing properly and how hard it was on the turtle when being removed. Watch video here:

PROTECT THE ENVIRONMENT AND STOP USING STRAWS

Alternatives if you like using straws

There are plenty of alternatives to disposable plastic straws available if you like slurping a smoothie or shake. Many retailers today stock glass, stainless steel and bamboo straws. Biome has a huge reusable straw range that you can check out. Keeping one wrapped up in your handbag is also an option.

Educating your friends and family about how dangerous straws can be, will help motivate them to make the switch to straw-free.

Saying no to straws seems like such a simple action, and it is. But actions like these really do make an enormous difference to our environment.

Just remember, that straw could end up in a turtle’s nose!

Recycling Tips from Wisynco

Wisynco promoted their ongoing Recycling ‘Eco’ campaign at Expo Jamaica a few weeks ago.

Plastics are not biodegradable, so they do not disappear or break down naturally when they are thrown on our streets and wash down into our gullies, blocking drains. To help prevent flooding and keep Jamaica clean, we need to recycle.

You can start your own recycling journey by calling Wisynco today to get Recycle bags and bins for your home, office of curbside.

You can also drop off your collection of plastics to the following locations:
