Ditch Plastic Drinking Straws

Why You Should Ditch Plastic Straws!

Why You Should Ditch Plastic Straws

Americans use over 500 000 000 (five hundred million!) plastic drinking straws per day! Straws are made of plastic, which is made from oil. Therefore, the making of so many straws causes a lot of pollution on the Earth. To make matters worse, most people do not recycle straws, even though they are recyclable.

 

If Straws are Recyclable, why can’t we fix the Problem by Recycling?

Straws may be recyclable, but any plastic that is created on the Earth will likely stay here forever, or almost forever. Straws can be recycled and used again as plastic, but the plastic will never leave the Earth since plastic is pretty much non-biodegradable. If there is a small demand for plastic straws, less plastic straws will be made, and therefore less plastic and pollution will be on the Earth. Next time you buy a soft drink at a fast-food restaurant, ditch the straw, and help the Earth. It’s simple to drink beverages without a straw!

    Leah^I’m actually wearing this shirt at work while I write this review. I love it and every time I wear it I get a compliment (I work in an office that is 95% men so that’s saying something LOL). It’s not as long in the back as the picture appears&#44 but I don’t mind being as I’m 5’10” so a lot of things don’t fall “correct” on me – yet&#44 it’s still long enough that I can wear with leggings and my entire butt isn’t exposed. I feel like this shirt would be flattering on anyone; I’m currently 5 months pregnant and it hides my “not yet pregnant enough to have a cute belly” stomach wonderfully. I’ve put it through the washer and dryer several times with all of my other delicate clothing and it’s held up absolutely perfect. If you’re on the fence about this shirt&#44 just buy it – you won’t regret it!~5|Sally^The picture looks like it falls off the shoulder&#44 but the neck line is not large enough to do that.That was the look I was expecting&#44 but unfortunately did not meet my expectations.I am a size 6&#44 and this could not be achieved that with a larger size. A little misleading insome photos&#44 but not all.~4|hannah stovall^Perfect fit! I ordered a medium and I am 5ft 3in. If I had a dollar for every compliment I got today on this dress…. well I would have about $40 lol. The only problem I see is a slight mark on the white part of the dress. Other than that it is exactly as pictured and lined at the skirt so it isn’t see through. This is the second pattern I have ordered and I will be ordering another soon!~5|awilliams^Love the top! Super cute! The colors were a little bolder than I expected but that’s ok. It doesn’t drape off my shoulder like in the picture. (She must be a size 00. I wear a small generally.) The neck just isn’t cut as large as that. I still love the feel of the blouse and the flow of the fabric. Was perfect for the summer!~4|Kara Lucas^For the price&#44 this was a great purchase. The colors were beautiful and very summery. I wore the shirt with a white tank underneath (it is a little bit see-through) and with white jeans&#44 and received many compliments on my outfit. I wore it over my shoulder a little bit and felt cool and stylish.~4|Karla Alarcon^Is cute and comfortable. Is too big if You are a thin person but putting with belt and it is much better.~5|Leticia Rizo^i loved it. went well with our Hawaii theme party.~5|Jo Villarreal^Although it is a very loose fit&#44 I absolutely LOVE it and got a whole lotta compliments. Highly recommend.~5|Jeanine^Love this lil’ shirt fits great looks great~5|b doak^This shirt was a little smaller than expected and does not really look like the picture. However&#44 it is still very pretty and extremely light weight. Great for hot weather or coverup.~3|

    Charles A. Rathbun&#44 Jr.^I have a big pumpkin head and finding hats which are true to size or even a bit loose is a challenge in today’s world where sizing is not consistent like it was when most clothing was American made. It’s a big floppy hat good for keeping the sun off your head and face. I guess it is uni-sex&#44 but it fits and the chin strap keeps it in place when I’m moving fast.~5|J. Colbert^Perfect fit&#44 excellent sun protection [recently diagnosed with skin cancer].This hat is light weight&#44 which makes it comfortable even in strong sun on hotter [above 90 F] daysand the chin strap comes in handy to keep it from blowing off on very windy days.~5|
