    Things have been going very well at SE Powell location. When I check in with employees, they are happy to be participating. I have no doubt that we will meet our goal of lowering straw waste by 25%. We have even offered employees reusable straws to use as they wish. I have been keeping mine in my bag and using it when I go out!

    here is a cool article about Straw waste. In the article it suggests to ask guests if they would like a straw, instead of automatically giving them one. This could be helpful with lowering straw usage for children and could also help save kids lids as well!!

      Thanks for posting this Amanda. I'm trying to build the habit of remembering to say "no straw" and it's surprisingly hard! Also things come with a straw often that I'm not expecting, like soda water with lemon.
