Plastic straws are one of the most found items on Los Angeles area beaches! 500 million straws are used every day in the U.S. !
💚Glad to see one of my favorite organic restaurants @Malibufarm is using paper straws! I hope more restaurants follow their example and more cities will follow Manhattan Beach (California), which banned all disposable plastic, including straws! .
Until then, we can reduce their use by simply asking to our server to bring drinks without straws. It is much better to avoid wrinkles, too! 😉✨🍃Other alternatives include stainless steel, bamboo, or glass straws, that can even be washed in the dishwasher! My favorite is @simplystraws!
🐠Let's eliminate the unnecessary use of single-use plastic straws. Join a beach clean-up, they are so much fun! ♻️

🍃Steel & silicon: @kleankanteen
🍃#Strawless: May I please have a _________?No straw please, thank you! In my opinion a drink without a straw is more interesting and you won’t risk to put plastic in your mouth plus you won’t cause wrinkles around your lips! 💕 @benjhicks
