Green Tip #14: Drinking Straws

The new Federal administration has put fighting climate change as a marque item in their agenda. We all have a part to play in supporting this agenda. This bi-weekly Environmental Moment will highlight some environmental good news and offer tips on how you can help reduce waste, energy, and use of plastics. May this instill hope for our future.


Good News: California was the first state to ban plastic straws in restaurants.


Green Tip #14: While you will not get a plastic straw in Starbucks or Applebees anymore, you can still buy them for personal use. Consider purchasing glass or metal straws instead. They are inexpensive and easy to clean.
