International Straw Free Day

In the mission to save the planet from plastic, the first step step is the last straw!
On 22nd February people around the world are celebrating International Straw Free Day!
Our addiction to single-use plastic means this little cylindrical tube is causing huge amount of harm to marine and terrestrial life.
In Israel we use between 1-5 million straws every single day! Since Israel is a coastal country, many of these straws end up in the sea, where turtles, birds, fish and other sea life consume straws and other plastics thinking its food.
Plastics don’t biodegrade for up to 400 years! They just break down into smaller and smaller pieces, called Microplastics. In the process they produce bisphenol (BPA) which interferes with reproductive systems in marine life and is suspected to cause cancer.
The good news is that we don't really need straws! Around the world, people are starting to realise the damage caused by straws and are choosing to order their drink #StrawFree
That’s why on 22nd February Straw Free Israel is inviting consumers and businesses to celebrate International Straw Free Day with us!   
These these amazing businesses are leading the way to a sustainable future by reducing their use of straws and other plastics wherever possible. In addition, to celebrate with us they are offering you- our supporters - free gifts and discounts if you ask for your drink Straw Free on the 22nd February!!
