As we look forward to enjoying the year-end celebrations as well as the new year celebrations, we can’t help but think of all those little plastic cocktail straws that will be thrown away shortly after each drink has been enjoyed. The thought of how big of a number that is hurts the brain. This is totally out of style.
But you and I have a choice. We know there’s an alternative and we can’t go back to contributing to the problem. We need to be the ones setting the new standard, raising the bar, and generating the tipping point. One day in-the-not-so-distant-future, single-use plastics will be a thing of the past and we will look back knowing we had a part in making that happen.
Sustainability and responsibility, here we come! If you’ve read this, take it as a challenge to seek out a few ways that you can start (or continue) to make progress towards being an example of this future. You are the new style and we thank you for owning it!
