Plastic Straw Facts:

* 500 MILLION plastic straws are used in the United States EACH DAY!!!

*That's enough straws to circle the planet 2.5 times!!!

*Or enough to fill a major league baseball stadium 9 times!!!

* It takes up to 200 YEARS  for a straw to degrade!

*Plastic Straws are generally made from type 5 plastic or polypropylene which is NOT recyclable and may degrade but never biodegrades. This means they will only break down into small pieces, but will always remain as plastic.

* Plastic straws are the 11th most abundant ocean trash

* Each year, 100 MILLION sea birds and 100,000 sea animals die from ingesting plastic!!!
