Most of the trash in our landfills and oceans is plastic, plastic bags, plastic containers, plastic straws, etc. Every year billions of straws are thrown away because they are a guilty pleasure for most kids and people even though they aren’t really necessary. The problem is that they are not very environmentally friendly. The making of straws in factories releases greenhouse gases, and straws contain petrochemicals and toxins like BPA. Also, in oceans and marine habitats they are consumed by fish and birds, which damage their digestive organs and cause them to become poisoned and die.
