Paper, not plastic straws

So with my desire to begin to remove plastic from my life, I’ve decided to start with plastic straws. Maybe a couple of weeks ago, I saw paper straws for sale in one of our two local grocery stores. So now with this article tonight entitled “UK Burger King Bans Plastic Straws ” by Sami Grover over at the Treehugger, I’m feeling a bit ambitious.

What I would like to do is write a letter to both of our local groceries stores to see if they’ll stop carrying plastic straws. You see I purchased a set of metal straws for my family a while ago, so maybe this is the next logical step. I’m also thinking about starting a petition over on the Care2 website. I’ll let you know.
