For instance, the claim that straws are used on average for 20 minutes before being tossed. I'm writing an essay on plastic consumption and would love to include this fact with supporting documentation.

People buy beverages from the local stores and fast foods, bring it down to the beach, and when finished, just toss the straw on the sand but put the cup in the trash. While individuals (like myself) do what they can to prevent trash buildup, I think the vendors and fast food places ought to do their fair share by only buying recyclable products to put their food and beverages in.
