Nature is increasingly full of human waste, one of which is a plastic item that is hard to recycle. Plastics are the result of petroleum extraction, not all recyclable, most just end up in the trash. This could overload the Earth's performance and exacerbate the Earth's quality for the next generation. Of course, we can contribute more to the Earth by reduce waste that are take too long to recycle.
To reduce waste of plastic straw, you can buy bamboo or stainless steel straw that after used can be washed for use again. If you do not want to use a plastic straw option, just drink straight from the glass.
Instead of buying plastic drinking water in a minimarket, it would be more efficient and better to bring your drinking water from home. Because plastic bottles are hard to recycle.
