Using straws will create garbage and they will quickly enter the marine food chain-but this can be avoided.
The worst thing about plastic straws is that most of the time, they can be left unselected.
Like most disposable plastic products, plastic straws are used in take-away
bags, beverage cups, iced tea and water. If you pick up plastic on the beach,
you will find that plastic straws are one of the most common plastic trash. They are everywhere. Once they enter the marine ecosystem, plastic straws are mistaken for food and eaten by fish and birds. Straws are used to suck foam drinks in small sips. They can only be used once, and then they are immediately treated like garbage.
Summer is the best time to take action on plastic straws because summer is the peak period for using straws. A unique organization hopes to avoid waste
of straws by encouraging people to take some simple measures.

straw is made of stainless steel or glass (I have tried both, metal straws have
the longest life. But glass straws are more suitable for cocktails and more
resistant than you think.) You can choose from These stainless steel straws can be found on Williams Sonoma, Bed, Bath, Beyond and online.
Another option is a paper straw, which is disposable and sometimes the straw is decorated with delicate colours and patterns (this is my favourite). You can
even find that paper straws are made from recycled environmentally friendly
