Straws or Environment?
Do you know that millions of straws are used in McDonalds in Canada? In America, there are over 500 million straws being used every day. And plastic straws are one of the top five trash items found on beaches and in the water by the reports that were made since May 24th 2018.
Different item that were found that you can use other then plastic straws are bamboo, glass, stainless steel, paper straws and even maybe biodegradable straws. If you are lucky enough and live where the papaya leave steam grows, you can use the papaya leaves as a beautiful natural straw, for example for special fancy kind of drinks (Grey,2018).
