New Zealanders throw away 541 million straws each year and tens of thousands of takeaway cups every day! Not to mention other one use plastics from our takeaway meals! These items, that we use only once, can take 200 years to break down into tiny toxic particles that affect our precious oceans and sea life. You may have seen the YouTube clip of the poor turtle with a straw stuck up its nostril, it’s not nice!
The great news! If you like takeaway food and drinks you can now do it sustainably by swapping from plastic to reusable! Check out our reusable, plastic free items.
