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

  • Reflection Question
    Health Exercise Daily
    How can you incorporate other personal values (like quality time with friends or spending time in nature) into your exercise routine?

    You can easily exchange going to the gym for hiking at a park with friends, or taking a walk/ bike ride outdoors. 
  • 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?

    Instead of ordering drinks with plastic containers, I could bring my own reusable cup. Also, at the grocery store, instead of getting plastic bags for everything, I can bring reusable bags with me. This will illuminate the amount of plastic I am receiving.
