One Less Straw

posted on November 17, 2016

Dear Young Reporters for the Environment Teams,   The OneLessStraw.org  campaign is a global awareness and school fundraising campaign which allows students to learn about the severity of our 500,000,000 per day plastic straw usage.  The campaign provides students with the facts they need to be able to become the ‘teacher’ in their homes and 100% of the funds generated by getting the parents to pledge not to use a plastic straw for an entire month goes to the school.
