This pledge closed about 3 years ago
According to Simply Straws, about 500 million plastic straws are used in the U.S. every day. Help us get people to pledge to refuse to use plastic straws in their beverages! Sign our pledge today.
Why is this pledge important? The average American will sip through approximately 38,000 or more straws in their lifetimes. Not only do they rarely get reused or recycled, but these billions of straws all come with a plastic/paper wrap, creating additional waste.
Do your part to cut down on unnecessary waste – take the pledge to enjoy your next beverage straight from the glass, without using a plastic straw, or use a glass or stainless steel straw instead.
