Help me find statistics on drinking straw usage

i'm giving a presentation on the negative environmental impact of drinking straws but I can't seem to find statistics on their manufacture or use anywhere. I just want to get an idea of how many straws are used every year, how much plastic that is, etc.

I know straws are a drop in the bucket compared to pop bottles or shopping bags, but they also serve 0 practical function, which is why I'm targeting them.
