San Diego Coastkeeper publishes reports of beach cleanups, which indicate that 4.5% of trash items to be ‘lids cups and straws’. They don’t list straws seperately, but since a person is more likely to have a cup without a straw than a straw without a cup, I’d guess that straws accout for about 1% of trash items, or about 1,000 in the beach cleanup from 2017.
