Say No to Plastic Straws

  • 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?

    A single-use item that I regularly use is a plastic sandwich bag for my sandwich I eat at lunch.  I however try to reuse it at least once.  Instead of using a plastic bag I can buy a washable glass container to put my sandwich in.
