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!
