It’s an Ex-STRAW-Vaganza!!

It’s an Ex-STRAW-Vaganza!!
 3 Minute Read

Every bit of plastic ever created still exists.

 

You can’t change this fact, but you can change how much plastic is produced from this day forward by exercising your power as a consumer.

 

In the US alone:

500 MILLION straws are used EVERYDAY.

That’s enough straws to wrap around the Earth’s circumference 2.5 times.

So what can I do?

It all starts with 2 very simple words:

“No Straw”

Whether its your ice coffee or cold-pressed juice, even the early morning has opportunities to #RefuseTheStraw and take a bite out of the earth’s plastic pollution problem. Everytime time you say, “No straw please,” you are bringing awareness to the people around you, and you are being an activist without having to do the whole tie-yourself-to-a-tree thing.


  So let’s keep it simple:
(repeat after me)
 
“I’ll take a large decaf iced latte, extra foam, with almond milk.
No straw please.”
 
**see?…simple 😉
