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.

    Doing the straw challenge has really made me realize how many straws I use. I think I am going to stay straw less even after the challenge is over.

    5 minute showers are really hard to do. If you skip a day of showering though you have ten minutes!
