Plastic Sucks, but You Don’t!

Whenever I wear this shirt in public I get many questions about why I’m wearing it.  It automatically strikes up a conversation about the overuse of plastics in our society so it’s a great tool to educate more people!

  5. I’ve been a self proclaimed plastic snob for some time. Glass is much more easily recycled, too!

  6. Plastic Sucks because its just not that safe! Leeching chemicals? No thank you. Glass is prettier anyway! Especially when you add colors and designs like Strawesome does 🙂

  11. Good slogan! It’s always good to get the reminder out, don’t use single use plastic! Don’t forget the growing plastic garbage patches in the ocean!

  12. Single use plastic (straws, bottled water) sucks more than any other plastic. It never goes away, only breaks down into smaller size. it will stay in the landfills forever if it makes it there. Mostly it doesn’t get recycled or in trash and ends up in the oceans polluting the water and marine wildlife.

  15. Plastic sucks because it doesn’t disenegrate like other materials. It ends up in the ocean where the fishes eat it, then we eat the fishes, and I don’t like the taste of plastic.

  17. Plastic sucks because it leeches nastiness into our food and drinks and who wants that?

  18. Plastic does suck!! Full of too many chemicals; and we cannot be exactly sure what it is even doing once it gets inside our body.
    And, yes, that shirt is awesome and I would LOVE wearing it!!
    By the way, LOVE my Strawesome straws! Haven’t used plastic straws in many, many months and don’t miss them a bit!! Considering getting one for each of my 6 kiddos for Christmas as a stocking stuffer! 🙂

  19. Plastic sucks! I really hate that awful taste it has and that it can only be reused a couple times. Strawesome Rocks! That t-shirt rocks!

  20. Yes, plastic sucks! I have had chemical allergies my whole life and wonder how many are from everyday plastics. Thanks for the chance to win! We have been using your straws for over a year and have given many as gifts.

  22. I often wonder if we use plastic straws because we think the beverage glasses aren’t clean.

  23. PLASTIC SUCKS because it eventually ends up adding to the dumps on this planet, contributing to higher and higher mounds of trash 🙁

  24. Plastic sucks – because it isn’t recycled – more trash! Love the shirts.

  25. Plastic straws suck because they are made from petroleum, then thrown away after each beverage, only to stay on this earth as garbage FOREVER! The earth and its resources are too precious to waste. We’re all in this together.

  26. Great idea, cool design, looove the color, bravo! A tee shirt with a message that I’d actually wear. Perfect conversation starter.
    Plastic sucks because you can’t (should not) reuse it, yet you can’t throw it away because with plastic, there’s no away. Once made, forever here. What was invented to help us is now killing us.

  27. LOVE the shirt! (Although “sucks” is a banned word here … LOL). I think plastic sucks because it tastes terrible and that terrible taste is most definitely chemicals!

  29. Plastic sucks because the plastic thrown away today will still be somewhere in a dump when my children are grown. This is not a future problem I want them to try to find ways to remedy, though I imagine some of our children will.

  30. We live in a petro-chemical soup, contaminating our health and our environment. Yes, plastic is convenient but deadly. It sucks the life out of everything!

  34. Plastic sucks because it’s a drain on the environment and causes harm to people & animals. Glass is beautiful & art!

  35. Plastic sucks because it’s toxic and killing us, a big part of the “depopulation” program mentioned in the media. Why do so many people think they’re exempt from this plan? When was the last time the Rockefellers invited you to dinner?

  36. Such a cute shirt! Love it! Leaching chemicals is scary. That alone is reason enough for not using plastic.
