    Have you noticed a shift in your community as more messaging about reusable straws becomes mainstream? Cite some examples.

    It is definitely common to see people carrying their own cups/ straws or steel straws at coffee shops and while theyre on errands. I just hope that the production of making steel straws and shipping them to people is better and not worse than the plastic straw.

    We went out for margaritas and when i got there, they were only serving out of plastic cups! Asked my friend who was on her way but still at home to bring reusable cups to the bar and she did!

    I am wondering for the future what I can do if I need to purchase something online... i feel like often times the items come wrapped in plastic. Hoping it’ll push me to find items that are found in stores nearby.

    This one was pretty easy because i usually shop for a small amount of items and when I am grocery shopping I grab the bags I keep in my car.

    It feels like saying no to bags will slowly become a norm in the city and Imm excited about that! Today all three of my friends and I skipped the plastic bag!

      I'm excited for you to see the FG recycled cotton grocery bags we had made.  They should be available this week!
