Paper straw’s are gaining popularity because they are biodegradable, and therefore safer for wildlife and the environment. These small changes could have a significant impact. If you think that in America alone, 500 million plastic straw’s are used each day, imagine the global impact of eliminating these single use plastics from production.
Biodegradable Paper straws may be a little more costly than plastic ones. Having said that, the public awareness and appetite for making green changes is growing. Last October, the government made a plan to ban the distribution and sale of plastic straws, drink stirrers and cotton buds.
From next April, only registered pharmacies will be able to sell plastic straws, meaning your paper straw will soon become the norm, and plastic will be a thing of the past. All though in the grand scheme of things, this is a scratch on the surface. It is estimated that plastic straws only account for 0.03% of plastic waste in the oceans but this little changes are what will help people start making those big decisions in managing other plastic wastes.
