Over 100 million tonnes of plastic is used every year. Over 10 million tonnes of that ends up in our oceans! There are 5 known gyres (ocean garbage patches) that cover up to 16 million km2! That is an area about the size of Europe, India and Mexico combined!

The problem is that these patches are not large islands of plastic, but tiny microplastics that we cannot just scoop up out of the ocean without affecting marine life. 

As it is almost impossible to remove these toxic microplastics from the ocean, prevention is the key and the way forward - REDUCE, REUSE, RECYCLE.
It is easy to get started and you might even save money!

Collapsible Reusable Metal Stainless Steel Straw with container $ 19.95 $ 19.99
Did you know that most Australian states have either banned or are soon to ban plastic straws!? So far plastic straws are banned in QLD, SA and WA! And are soon to be banned in ACT, NSW and VIC. Be one of the first to get our new branded high-quality Zero Waste Co reusable stainless steel straws! These great little straws come in their own carrying case and have a cleaning brush for easy cleaning and are dishwasher safe. Not surprisingly, plastic straws are one of the most common items found on beaches all over the world. Plastic straws are manufactured from polypropylene, a by-product of petroleum that requires a large amount of energy and natural resources to extract and refine. Plastic straws may be used for only a few minutes, but their negative impact lasts for lifetimes. Unlike some soft plastics which can be recycled, plastic straws cannot be recycled. As they travel down the conveyor belt at your local recycling facility, small items like straws fall through the cracks. This means that straws sit in landfill for years or pollute our oceans and waterways, harming marine life. In the ocean, plastic does not biodegrade. Instead, it simply breaks down into smaller pieces over hundreds of years. It is estimated that 8 million tonnes of plastic pollute our oceans every year. Features: Material -- The body of the straw is made of food-grade stainless steel, no metal aftertaste, plastic-free, dishwasher safe, reusable and eco-friendly. Portable Size -- Perfect design with triple-jointed stainless steel, it can be easily folded and fits into a keychain-sized container, ready to go whenever you need it Straw Size: 0.9 x 0.9 x 22.5cm / 0.35 x 0.35 x 8.85Case Size: 7.3 x 3.3 x 2.7cm / 2.87 x 1.29 x 1. The Collapsible Straw's interior tube is exquisitely made of medical-grade silicone. Perfect Length -- The whole straw is about 22.5cm(8.85) Comes with a storage case, to keep the straw clean and makes it convenient for travel, outing, camping, etc. Reusable -- It features sturdy & rust-proof material. It's designed to serve as a reusable straw, which replaces the need for plastic straws that cause pollution.
