Plastic straws

As I think I’ve mentioned before, my use of plastic is something I’m trying to reduce. First with plastic bags and now with straws. So when I came across this article over at the Washington Post, it only reinforced that idea.

The article is entitle “A Campaign to Eliminate Plastic Straws is Sucking in Thousands of Converts” by Darryl Fears. I will warn you however, the video of a straw being pulled out of a Sea Turtles nose is kind of gross. At the same time, you get the idea of what we’re doing to our planet and with Sea Turtles being one of my favorite animals, it was hard to watch.
