BLOG STATS As of 01.29.2017 onward have been counting the number people who have read each post. WHY CUT PLASTIC About 100 million tons of plastic are produced each year and much of it is used to make one-use, disposable items. Because plastic doesn't biodegrade these items, though only used for moments can last for decades, centuries, possibly forever. We are creating ever lasting rubbish in unsustainable amounts. It is polluting the environment, maiming even killing animals, poisoning fish and may be poisoning us.

  1. Thanks Pam! People who think straws are a small issue should work a shift in a restaurant. The straws here, are wrapped in plastic individually, then most of them come in plastic boxes, that come in bigger boxes wrapped in plastic. They wash up at my feet when I´m working on the tideline all the time. Yes, there are other plastic issues (a lot! Don´t get me started!) but straws are one of them, they´re not exempt. & they are SO easy to not have. I see people take them straight & put them on the table.

    I can still get drunk & have fun without straws! People should try it.

  2. Blimey I remember those. Remember they used to get soggy and stick together so you couldn’t suck anymore? No, I haven’t seen them anywhere in ages. If you check out the carnival post featuring your movie there is a link to start alternatives. I need some cos they will not stop giving me straws over here in Asia. Driving me nuts.

  3. I say no straws! I used to work in a resturaunt and they’re so unhygenic. I saw waitresses put them in drinks with their dirty hands, or after they were on the floor. Blech!
