    Avoiding grocery store bags has become a habit for a lot of people and grocery stores are making it easier by offering reusable bags, but I still forget to bring bags for produce and non-grocery stores like clothing or boutiques.

    Have you noticed a shift in your community as more messaging about reusable straws becomes mainstream? Cite some examples.

    A small shift! Some restaurants aren't giving straws automatically anymore. Would love to see more of that, sometimes I forget to say I don't want a straw until I see one in my drink...
