A few weeks ago a video of a turtle with a plastic straw in its nose went viral on Facebook. Those images continue to haunt me and every time I order a drink I say a big NO to straws. But that’s not enough.
The next big step is to begin discussion with local bars, cafes and restaurants to stop using plastic straws in the first place and find better solutions.
The The Last Straw Australia have now started their crowdfunding campaign to create kits to make it easier for venues make the transition.
Make sure to watch the video and show your support by visiting the donations page on: https://www.chuffed.org/project/the-last-straw
