#5 Straws

The straw. It once represented warm and fuzzy feelings because it was a part of so many memories. Getting a soda at the movies, milkshakes at the 50’s diner, grandpa’s homemade root beer floats or teenage meetups at the local fast-food restaurant. Then the silly straws or that hat that would hold the soda cans with a long straw to drink from it. It’s crazy to think that all of those straws exist somewhere still in the planet.The straw no longer represents happy warm, fuzzy, feelings. Ever since the video of the turtle surfaced kids and adults everywhere are more conscientious of the impact this product is making in environments it doesn’t belong.We are here to help with a little lite and simple hacks around the straw.Sofia and Michelle talk STRAWS with Buzzfeed content curator Auri Jackson. From how we began using the straw to how many get used a day, this uplifting discussed will help any listener with simple tips on how to “stop sucking”.
