Plastic straws. These are an example of single-use plastic objects that are discarded soon after use. As they are not biodegradable, they persist in the environment, often with damaging effects, particularly on marine wildlife. As of 2018, various bans have been proposed or implemented on disposable single-use plastics such as plastic drinking straws.
