Plastic Straws in Australia:

A Problem that Numbers 3.5 Billion

  • An estimated 3.5 billion plastic straws are thrown out every year in Australia.

  • The very first plastic straw you ever used is still somewhere on Earth.

  • Plastics are having a devastating impact on the Great Barrier Reef.

  • It’s believed over half of all sea turtles are being harmed by plastic waste, for example, by eating a plastic bag. People might use a plastic bag for 5 or 10 minutes, and these can impact a turtle for life.

  • Several pubs in Sydney said they used about 10,000 straws a month.

Plastic Straws in UK:

A Problem that Numbers 8.5 Billion


The government has confirmed a ban on plastic straws, drinks stirrers, and plastic cotton buds in England from 2020.

Its after over 80% of people voted in support of a ban on the sale of plastic straws in a public consultation.

We use an estimated 8.5 billion plastic straws every year in the UK.

Most straws are made from plastics called polypropylene and polystyrene which, unless recycled, take hundreds of years to decompose and are only used for a very short time.

Plastic Straws in Canada:

A Problem that Numbers 20.8 Billion


The Canadian Government plans to “ban harmful single-use plastics as early as 2021” in an effort to reduce the 3 million tons of plastic waste tossed out by the country every year.

According to the Canadian government, 15 billion plastic bags are used in Canada every year, along with 57 million plastic straws every day. Not only that, but only 10 percent of plastic waste in the country actually gets recycled.
