Let’s talk garbage for a minute! Remember the last time you ordered a green smoothie your favourite juice bar or picked up your morning coffee from a cafe? Think back to what you did after you finished your drink – most likely you threw everything – cup, lid and straw – in the garbage. Like many others, you thought because it’s plastic, it could be recycled. But did you realise that 91% of all plastic never gets recycled! And for things like straws, which are seen as insignificant, they most likely end up in landfill, or the ocean.
