This week’s tip is really simple. It’s something that almost all of us can do – maybe even on a daily basis. In the US alone, more than 500 million plastic drinking straws are used EACH DAY! According to Ocean Conservancy, plastic straws are one of the top 10 items found in their International Coastal Cleanups.
Tip 3 – Reduce, or preferably eliminate, your use of plastic straws.
If you are a consumer, dining at a restaurant perhaps, just say no when your server brings a straw with your drink. As a restaurant owner or server, make a policy of asking your customers if they would like a straw. You may be surprised when many of those customers decline.
