PLASTIC IS RUINING OUR ENVIRONMENT - YOU CAN MAKE DAILY CHOICES TO CHANGE THIS
Please check out the Plastic Pollution Coalition's website for insight into this issue
The Last Plastic Straw - SAY NO TO STRAW AT YOUR LOCAL RESTAURANTS AND BARS!
Over 500,000,000 plastic straws are used each day in the United States. In only the past twenty years, people have come to expect plastic straws in every drink, in an example of extreme waste being generated for minimal convenience. These short-lived tools are usually dropped into a garbage can with no further thought, instantly becoming a source of plastic pollution.
The Last Plastic Straw initiative seeks to activate citizens through a grassroots campaign to encourage individuals to push for change in restaurant protocol and practices in their local communities around the world.
