Recycling is an important, worthwhile endeavor, but it has its limits. Problems are best solved at the source. The amount of plastic straws that we use every is astronomical. Take this instance of excessive plastic usage for example.
According to a 2011 article by Business Insider (http://www.businessinsider.com/facts-about-mcdonalds-blow-your-mind-2011-11?op=1), McDonalds serves a meal to 1% of the approximately 7 Billion people that inhabit this planet. That is at least 70 million meals per daily. Just think about how many plastic straws that is! And this is just from one of thousands of fast food restaurants that serve plastic straws with almost all of their drinks.
Rather than scrambling to clean up the mess after we make it, we can avoid it entirely in the first place by switching to an eco-friendly, re-usable replacement. BeOrganic Glass Straws are the ideal product to fill this need.
