Who? What? Yes, you heard me right; I’m going strawless!! Did you know that each day we use 500 million straws-enough disposable straws to fill over 46,400 large school buses per year? That’s the startling fact I just discovered over at BeStrawFree.org. The campaign, organized by a nine-year-old named Milo, seeks the support of the straw industry, restaurants and other businesses toward reducing the use and waste of disposable plastic straws. www.bestrawfree.org
How can you go strawless?
-Say “no thanks” to disposable straws at restaurants
-Use reusable straws at home and work
-Rinse and reuse straws if you must use one
You can visit the site and pledge to go straw free for one month. I admit this may take a little getting use to! I also noticed this week at Starbucks they are selling sets of three reusable straws! Guess it’s catching on!
Here are a few garden update pics…
Can't wait for a BLT!
Lots of blossoms!
Stay tuned next week as I head to California for a week long trip down the Pacific Coastal Highway. Highlights along the trip include: winery tours, a stay at an eco-resort, sea kayaking, beautiful beaches and more!!
