Single-use plastics contribute to 40 percent of ocean pollution, according to Greenpeace. What is a single-use plastic, you may ask? It's quite simply anything you use once and throw away. Think plastic cups, utensils, and straws. Many cities, including Miami Beach and Seattle, have banned single-use plastics for their negative effects on the environment.
Here's the thing, though. Drinking out of a straw is fun! So we found an amazing alternative, stainless steel straws ($9)! This set comes with four straight straws, four bent straws, and two straw cleaners so they don't get dirty. This is an amazing way to save the environment and still enjoy your Summer sangria! We're never going back to plastic straws.
