Water

Say No to Plastic Straws

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.

    Wasn't able to fully see the sunrise or sunset due to the rain. Still made me appreciate the rain that came through. 
  • 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?

    My family doesn't use straws very often, we mainly use it when we go out to eat. However, I have been meaning to cut them out as best as I can especially since at my work place we advocate not to use them. Recently, I just purchased my first set of reusable straws. I used them at a restaurant where I informed my boyfriend, his cousin, and his date about the challenge and how by reusing a straw i can cut back on the plastic one use ones.

    I am grateful towards the sky, the rivers, and the trees. These have been the main natural gifts I keep being drawn towards. I hope to continue to appreciate more.

    Looking into buying sustainable foods/drinks when I go shopping. One of the things I already participate in is by looking at the labels on my products. I now am more often to choose foods that are organic, non-gmo's, and certified products on sustainable fishing.

    By focusing on who I am grateful for it inspires me to make changes to better myself for them and my life.
