TAF’s campaign against the straws

Why NO to plastic straws?

  • There are 8.3 billion straws scattered globally on our coastlines
  • Plastic decomposes into micro plastic, which is very harmful to ocean life and can cause death
  • Straws are often eaten by fish and other wildlife
  • 3.2 billion straws are thrown away yearly in France alone
  • The average person uses 38 straws yearly
  • It takes at least 200 years for a straw to decompose

What we can do to help

  • Use alternatives- TAF loves the PASTA alternative
  • Refuse straws when ordering drinks
  • Encourage your friends to get involved

Let’s get strawless
