The Saga of Straws and the Materials that Make Them

Paper, plastic, PFAS, PHA – when it comes to straws, there are enough “p” words to make your head spin, but these four materials are worth remembering. What your straw is made of matters because some of those materials also create some “p” words of their own: pollution and health problems. However, one doesn’t – PHA.

On June 8, National Geographic celebrated World Oceans Day by officially naming a fifth ocean – the Southern Ocean. You might be thinking, “Well, that’s cool, but aside from changing the words on a map, so what?” Conservation and protection. That’s what. The Southern Ocean encircles Antarctica and has a crucial impact on the Earth’s climate. This body of water is defined by a current, the Antarctic Circumpolar Current (ACC).

One Small Sip to Protect Our Oceans and Our Health

The impact of ocean pollution on marine life is easy to see. What hasn’t been quite so clear is how this pollution affects human health. A recent study published in the American Journal of Public Health is changing that, showing that ocean health and human health are “intricately linked.” While polluted oceans can directly impact our health, in that swimming in contaminated areas can cause respiratory and gastrointestinal issues and coastal populations may be affected by the build-up of contaminants, there are read more One Small Sip to Protect Our Oceans and Our Health
