    Okay, I've done some research about environment justice and about ways to cut down on plastics.  My next challenge is make a letter template to use in contacting legislators.

    My buddy and I play golf a bit, and both of us have been using re-usable metal straws and refillable water bottles for a few years now.  Didn't use to see that as plastic bottles or styrofoam cups/straws were the norm.

    Environment justice.  What is it?  I did a little research, and we've got our work cut out for us.  According to the EPA: Environmental justice will happen when all people experience the same protection from environmental health hazards and the same degree of influence in environmental decision making processes.
