Nowadays disposable plastics often arrive at our hands without we requesting it. The drinking straws are the perfect example of that.
Straws drastically increase the amount of plastics that become waste after just one use. Sometimes we don’t even use it, but as they served the beverage with it, it has to go to the trash. If you come to think about it, its use is dispensable in almost every case.
The problem with these straws is that they are almost never recycled, ending in landfills or worse in the ocean.
Did you know in Portugal the straws provided by fast food chains, in just one year, are sufficient to travel the world 5 times?
