- Best Days
When dining out, simply request “no straw” with your beverage to help reduce trash. Most of us don’t use a drinking straw with our glass of water at home, so why use one when out? Over 500 million plastic straws are used and discarded every day in the United States alone — that’s 175 billion a year going to landfills and littering our oceans. Go a step further and ask your favorite establishment to only provide a straw when requested by a customer.
