Did you know that Australians use about 10 million straws every day?
Unlike some plastics which can be recycled, plastic straws cannot. They end up in landfill for years or pollute our oceans and waterways, harming marine life.
In the ocean, plastic does not biodegrade. Instead it simply breaks down into smaller pieces over hundreds of years.
It is estimated that 8 million tonnes of plastic pollute our oceans every year.
