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

  • 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?

    I regularly use plastic bags when I go shopping.  I could bring reusable bags with me whenever I go to a store to eliminate my use of plastic bags.

    Consider how many hours of sleep you get now. How would you like to shift your sleep patterns? What are you finding works for you to be successful in this action?

    I try to get around 8 hours of sleep every night.  I hope to shift my sleep patterns so that I go to bed earlier and am able to then wake up earlier.  I find that putting my phone away 30 minutes before I go to sleep helps to aid in getting to sleep faster.
