In the United States we use 500 million straws a day! That is enough straw waste to wrap the circumference of the earth 2.5 times or to fill Yankee Stadium over 9 times in a year! Now imagine that magnified by global consumption! Let’s change those stats!
Come to our Earth Day Celebration on Sunday April 29, from 9:30-10:30 am in the Activity Center and learn how you can join the First Lutheran “The Last Plastic Straw” campaign. Come young and old and every age in between! There will be music, fun, facts, campaign materials and NO plastic straws!
To learn more about why you should think twice before taking another plastic straw, visit https://thelastplasticstraw.org/.
