Put That Plastic Straw Down!

According to an article written by One Green Planet, each day humans produce and use 500 million straws, yes 500 million.  To put that into perspective, the website eco.cycle breaks it down like this: 500 million straws could fill 127 school buses a day (46,400 per year).  Between the ages of 5-65 a person will use 38,000 straws.  

Wow, I don’t know about you, but that is a crazy amount of waste that is ending up in our landfills and oceans.  In the oceans these not only become waste, but hazards to some marine life and sea birds.  So what can you do?  Stop using single use plastic straws because…PLASTIC LASTS FOREVER.

Mason Jar Lifestyle carries several sizes of straws in both Stainless Steel Straws, Glass Straws, Silicone Straws, as well as Biodegradable Paper Straws .  It is very easy to carry these straws with you, or just refuse the straw at the restaurant.  Mason Jar Lifestyle is your one stop shop to help do your part and #CrushPlastic.  

We here at Mason Jar Lifestyle know that if we do not decrease the amount of single use plastic now there will eventually be more plastic than fish in the ocean!  Check out the other great article from One Green Planet here, the list below is taken directly from their article and pay close attention to numbers 4 & 5!  Mason Jars and Reusable Straws are your new BFF’s!!

14 Ways You Can #CrushPlastic in Your Daily Life
