1) Ask for “no straw” every time you go out to eat this week
2) Ask the manager of your favorite restaurant if they would consider switching to recycled paper straws. Ask more than one restaurant if you are up for it!
3) Resolve to bring home any plastic straw you do end up using and cut it lengthwise, then into very small pieces from there- it only takes a sec!
4) If you are up for the sad truth, or need proof that straws are bad, WATCH THIS graphic video
Ongoing Extra Credit-
Buy some stainless steel or recycled paper straws and get them into your car and purse for use when you dine out! Make that statement! Share with friends while out and about, then take them home and wash them up for another round!
