CLEVELAND, OH (WOIO) -

The nonprofit group Oceans Ohio has been promoting the "Refuse The Straw" movement.

One organization focusing on cleaning up the ocean, Project 0, has been asking people to stop getting straws or stirrers with a beverage. 

Organizers said plastic waste is trashing every ocean.

President Lynette Reiner said the movement will help keep litter out of various streams, rivers, lakes and oceans.

Reiner was happy to see a new method to limit the amount of plastic waste going toward landfills.

"I bought stainless steel straws," Reiner said.

Oceans Ohio visits schools in Northeast Ohio to let students know different ways to protect the environment.

The group also gives out reusable water bags to help limit plastic waste..

Reiner doesn't think people should stop using straws, but just invest in reusable straws.
