Immediately we decided that we have to begin somewhere to reduce our "plastic footprint" on this beautiful world we all share.
Returning to Canada, we began educating ourselves about how many plastic straws are used everyday...and the average length of time each straw is used. Think about it...how long does it take to consume a Starbucks Iced Tea or a McDonald's coke? Those straws are all disposed of in our landfills or oceans.
Then our family searched Youtube... have you seen that video of the poor Ridley turtle with the plastic drinking straw being pulled out of his nose... what are we doing to our planet ? It was that video that was the "last straw" for our family. Hopefully yours too. It is time to get rid of single-use plastic drinking straws!
As a family we are now using and offering reusable, compostable and biodegradable straws. Whether it is wheat, bamboo, stainless steel or glass, we offer it.
