The OneLessStraw campaign strives to educate the public about the dangers of single use plastic straws, its effects on our health, our environment, and our oceans.
Did you know that plastic constitutes 90% of all trash floating in the world's oceans? Or that over 6 million straws and stirrers were picked up during annual beach clean-up events in the last 25 years?
500 million plastic straws are used and discarded every day in the United States alone. That’s 175 billion a year filtering into landfills and littering the oceans.
