Meet Sippy, the world's last plastic straw.
Sippy, a plastic straw who was used once and discarded, is concerned by his own existence when he realizes he can't be recycled. As he flies, floats, and flutters around the planet, he meets animals who are struggling with the plastic problem. He chats with a raccoon with a six-pack ring around his neck, a cardinal whose nest is made entirely of junk, turtles who confuse grocery bags with food, a hermit crab forced to live in a plastic cap, and a startled duck who runs around with a chip bag on her head. Finally, Sippy is swallowed by a hungry whale--who is dining on ocean trash Just when all hope seems lost, he skyrockets to freedom and provides the reader with alternatives to single-use plastics. This colorful adventure raises awareness of the impact of plastics upon nature, and teaches children how they can avoid contributing to the problem.
