Americans use 500 million straws a day; enough to fill Yankee Stadium over 9 times in a year!
June 7, 2017
Even the smallest change can make a big difference.
Do you really need to use a drinking straw? With most beverages, probably not! Make this one change and help America reduce the amount of plastic going into our landfills.
Spend 43 seconds listening to a radio-KRCB broadcast to learn why it is important to make the change and about Sip-it-Sonoma, a county-wide campaign taking one step at a time to reduce the amount of waste recycled or disposed of in landfills.
Use a straw only when you must
If you must, use a paper straw
If ordering a drink, tell your server “no straw, please”
Encourage your family and friends to make the change too.
