Use the following introductory paragraph to answer the question.

Imagine this. You go out for lunch with some friends and you order a lemonade. You sip your delicious, sweet drink through a straw and think nothing of it. A few weeks later, your straw ends up in the ocean and into the mouth or nose of an innocent baby sea turtle. Americans alone use 500 million straws each day, which is enough to wrap around Earth 2.5 times. There are many ways that people can work to reduce that number by making small changes to their every day lives. Straws and other single-use plastics are a danger to our planet and should not be used.
