    A co-worker was so inspired by me, she bought me metal straws and bought them for herself.

    In what ways is supplying your pet with all natural pet toys better for your pet, better for you, and better for the environment?

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

    Went to Royal Farm, got a large fountain soda, and drank all day with no straw.  I missed having a straw,  but I had to challenge myself without one.

    I went to Panera Bread, and was getting ready to grab a straw, and then remembered my challenge.

    How does the act of picking up litter connect you more to your community?

    I was walking my dog and picked up some trash, which makes me feel good.
