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 5 plastic straw(s) of out of the ocean each day.

    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?

    Five minute showers are an impressive step toward reducing your water footprint. What is the next step you can take?

    Luckily its easy with short hair to shower in 5 minutes but its possible with long hair too if you don't get distracted by enjoying the hot water.
