The last straw

My commitment to sustainability begins with my first and last metal straw. Over the entirety of my life, I've been a big user of plastic straws. From slurpees to smoothies, I would go through multiple plastic straws in the span of 1 week. The play on words step "the last straw" represents my resentment towards the overconsumption of plastic and goal of only using one metal straw for all my drinking needs. It’s estimated that as many as 70% of seabirds and 30% of turtles have ingested some type of plastic from the ocean. This alarming statistic alone has influenced me and I hope that through this one step, I can live a more sustainable life and reduce the impact our plastic disposables have on marine life.
