Plastic waste is a huge, and still growing threat to the eco-systems of the world. Plastic never truly decomposes, it merely decays into smaller and smaller versions of itself util those pieces (called microplastics) contaminate the food chain. One of the greatest sources of plastics which are introduced to the environment are single-use plastic straws. Why is there not an eco-friendly solution to this problem?
Well, with new Trew Balance Labs Hemp Drinking Straws, there is!
Plastic waste is a problem. Some facts about plastic waste include:
- There are several, multi-mile in diameter wide patches of plastic waste floating around our oceans.
- It can take a plastic straw about 200 years to break down in the environment.
- It is estimated that nearly half-a-million drinking straws are used EVERY DAY in the U.S. alone.
- Plastics never truly decomposes; they simply break down into smaller and smaller microscopic pieces of plastic called Micro-plastics.
- These small pieces of plastic are consumed by smaller organisms, which is how they enter the food stream to larger and larger fish until they reach the human level, where they can cause health problems and digestive complications.
Traditional plastics (petroleum based) stay with us long after they are used and discarded. Would not a better option be to use plant-based plastics (known as Bioplastics) which are decomposable and disappear from the environment within weeks to months?
