DAILY ACTIONS

Create Your Own Action

Don't Suck. Go Strawless.

Plastic drinking straws are among the most unnecessary products we use in daily-life. Straws end up in landfills and oceans, plugging the noses of sea turtles, which you might have seen in the viral video. In the U.S. alone, people discard 500 million straws every day, or more than 180 billion a year. That's about 1.4 million kilograms of plastic sent to landfills and into the oceans every day! Join me in ditching straws, for now or forever!

      Making your own is a super fun way to control what you have in your home! Sometimes it gets a little messy though!

    Crazy to see how many things have added sugar! Cook more from home and avoid processed meals to control what goes into your food.
