When it comes to living more sustainably, sometimes we get overwhelmed. There’s so much that needs to be done. Some actions are hard. Some alternatives are expensive. But there are simple steps we can take to make a difference. Here are some simple suggestions to reduce our waste, recycle better and live a more sustainable life. Together we all can make a difference.
WHAT: Stop using Straws
WHY: Straws are not recyclable. Americans use 1.6 straws per person per day, adding up to 500 million straws daily. That is enough straws to wrap around the Earth 2.5 times, in just one day.
HOW: Use reusable straws at home. Carry a reusable straw (along with other reusable utensils) with you. At restaurants, refuse the straw or use your own.
Try one or all of these to reduce your straw usage!
