    I've started carrying reusable bags in my car and backpack so I don't forget and have to use a plastic to-go bag.

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

    I have noticed more to-go restaurants offering paper straws or asking if a straw is needed. Much appreciated!
