No Straw November

Amy Berkowitz / Wednesday, Oct. 18, 2017 @ 3:13 p.m. / Activism, Environment

Today I talked with Shelby O'Neil, founder of Jr. Ocean Guardians 


and Jackie Nunez, founder ofthelastplasticstraw.org about No Straw November. Plastic straws are an environmental issue. Each day Americans use and dispose of enough plastic straws to circle the Earth 2 1/2 times!

At Jr. Ocean Guardians Shelby is taking pledges for No Straw November. She is collecting donations; for a $2 donation, you will be given this cute Sea Otter patch.



Shelby is planning to share profits with Girl Scout troupes who have been impacted by hurricanes this season. Learn more about the environmental issues about plastic straws here, and here is a link to printable flyers and cards asking for straws to be served upon request only.
