Non-degradable plastics are poisoning our oceans, wildlife and our own health. Straws are among the most polluting items; they are generally only used once for about 10 minutes while existing much longer than a lifetime. The ‘Plastic Soup’ bracelets, made from gold- or silver-plated melted straws, direct our attention to this environmental issue.
