Did you know that the US consumption of straws every year is enough to fill the Yankee stadium over 9 times or that the US consumption of straws per day is enough to wrap around the Earth’s circumference 2.5 times a day. These facts are true and scary to me which made me think could I get people to go strawless? Then I decided to get people to sign a pledge to go strawless. I’ve gotten 60 people to sign and pledge to not use straws for a week. This means when you get boba, go to Starbucks, go to a restaurant, or go anywhere where they serve straws you ask for your drink without a straw. If you do happen to encounter a straw then you can wash it and reuse it. You might think that it’s weird but in reality you’re saving the environment. If you want to participate in this then you can sign up with seventh grader Aubrey Sumi. Don’t suck because disaster has already struck.
