Sustainable Sipping

According to, Americans use 500 million straws each day —enough disposable straws to fill over 46,400 large school buses
per year.

In February 2011, Milo (then 9 years old) founded the Be Straw-Free project, to work together with members of the straw industry, restaurants and other businesses, schools, environmental groups and concerned citizens to reduce the use and waste of disposable plastic straws.

There are reusable options, such as the stainless steels straws sold by Reusit.This is something we can all try —it will make a difference!
