Summary
Find out the dates, history and traditions of National Skip the Straw Day.

As the last Friday in February, National Skip the Straw Day aims to spread awareness about ecosystem damage caused by disposable plastics, such as drinking straws.

This day was founded by the Coral Keepers student group in Whitehall, Michigan and Susan Tate, their advisor in 2017.

Aside from the horrific scene of wildlife finding themselves entangled with single-use plastics, plastic straws don’t biodegrade but break up into smaller pieces called microplastics. They end up being recycled into the ecosystem and ingested all the way up the food chain.

Use this day to “skip the straw” and switch to glass or metal drinking utensils. Easy to wash and reuse, these alternatives last until they are recycled.
