Say No to Plastic Straws

Do at Home

An estimated 71% of seabirds and 30% of turtles have been found with plastics in their stomachs. When they ingest plastic, marine life has a 50% mortality rate. By asking for no straw when placing a drink order, I will keep 1 plastic straw(s) of out of the ocean each day.

    It's going well! I was recently sick so I haven't been actively thinking about sustainability, however, I haven't been using straws, and I've been trying to cut back on screentime.

    What did you notice in implementing this challenge? Was it hard to choose other activities over screen time? How did you decide to spend your time?

    It is definitely hard when your education is online, as well as social media and hobbies. I noticed that the easiest way to get away from the screen is to go outside and go on a walk in the park.
  • Reflection Question
    Water Say No to Plastic Straws
    What single-use items (e.g. straws, coffee cups, vegetable bags, plastic bags) do you regularly use? What could be substituted instead?

    I used to use a lot of plastic cups from Starbucks as well as straws. Recently, I decided it would be better for the environment to use my own cup and just make Iced Coffee at home.

    Wow! Recently went riding on the Max and on Lime Scooters and it was amazing. I had literally so much fun and there was a very small carbon emission because of it.

    It makes you think outside the box and breakdown the reasons for why we want to do certain things and if we can find an easier solution

    My favorite activity is biking around the park and feeling the cold air in nature. It's very relaxing!

      I'm sooo glad that the cooler weather has arrived! I personally found it difficult to enjoy the outdoors this summer when it was blistering hot!
