After years of hearing about plastic’s negative impact on the planet, we could no longer stand by idly. We’ve finally decided to put the environment first and cut plastic straws out of our diet.
We’ll be the first to admit that giving up plastic straws has been extremely difficult. We can’t think of anything more satisfying than the delicious crunch of one of those shiny green Starbucks straws. But if it means saving the planet from a climate disaster, we’re willing to say goodbye to the delicacy forever.
Think about the sea turtles!
Even though paper straws just don’t have the same chew as the real thing, that’s a sacrifice we’re willing to make. We’ll eat paper straws for the rest of our life if it means the polar bears won’t go extinct.
We’re urging you to join us. Look, not eating plastic straws for the past few days has been hard. But if we can do it, you can too. If we all work together, we can make a real difference here. How about we all also agree not to eat Styrofoam?
We’re not saying you can’t still eat plastic cups. Let’s take this one step at a time.
After hearing about how the damage we’ve done to our planet could become irreversible within the next few years, it’s time to take a stand. Even if that means turning our back on a utensil that’s as tasty as it is convenient.
