Here’s an astonishing environmental fact worth repeating: Americans throw away over 138 billion straws and stirrers every single year. Ordering beverages with the phrase “with no straw” is a simple way to cut down on plastic straw waste. But what do you do about your morning cup of joe? You can pre-fill your reusable cup with whatever you need (sugar, creamer) and then pour the coffee on top so it automatically mixes it. While it sounds simplistic, if everyone did this, we’d seriously cut back on billions upon billions of straw and stirrer waste.
