Over 550 million plastic straws are used and discarded in the USA everyday. ☹
This shocked us, so we wanted to help! Last year we took a family pledge to stop using plastic straws.
We ask for “No straw” when we are eating out, we pick up plastic straws that wash up on the beaches when we see them and we try to remember our reed straws every time we leave the house.
But sometimes we forget…so I was thrilled when my 13 year old thought of another way for us to remember to bring our reed straws everywhere we go.
