About 8 million tons of plastic enters the sea every year, with a vast majority of 80% coming from land sources. Plastics pollution has a deadly effect on the ocean and its ecosystem. Thousands of seabirds and sea turtles, seals and other marine wildlife are killed each year after ingesting plastic or getting entangled in it.
Where does all this plastic waste come from? A recent study found that 90% of all the plastic in the ocean flows from just 10 rivers; eight of those rivers are in Asia, and two in Africa. The lack of effective waste management measures is the major cause of this crisis.
How can we help conserve the oceans? At Thriven, we believe that starting with small steps would lead to big results. Our anti-plastic straw campaign is a contribution to the mother nature, with an aim to reduce the usage of straws – a single use plastic. We now offer reusable stainless-steel straws set that come with three different sizes and shapes so that you can Refuse the use of plastic straws.
Let’s be part of this amazing movement and make change for the better. SKIP THE PLASTIC STRAWS!
