Here in California, lawmakers are considering some laws.
Outlawing plastic straws (only paper ones allowed).
only giving a straw or fork to someone who asks.
Stuff like that.
Some cities have already passed bans.
Some companies are making that their policy ahead of time.

It might be a worthwhile effort to try some letter writing and petitions in your state. Or join The Last Plastic Straw Movement

more info below. plus a link to one of the organizations spearheading this movement.

I did plastic-free July

Hello, I am a perfection is the enemy of the good adherent. I wanted to join in on the reducing plastic challenge. I want to describe myself kindly okay I am rather overenthusiastic and under-organized. So my first few days going zero-waste plastic free I accidently left the freezer door open all day long, and twice had unwrapped burritos explode in my purse. So I decided to work with an "area of focus" model. That has gone much better. I am rewarding myself for having been successful by buying a kitchen gadget. I have wanted it for a very long time. I try and "buy for life". So coming in the mail soon is my grain flaker so I can make muesli and other cereals at home.

I feel devastated seeing those sea creatures die because of being poisoned by the plastics that they've been eating. It really breaks my heart. I felt guilty because I'm one of those people who are using plastics. But now I am doing my best not to use plastics at all or to recycle those plastics that we have at home. I hope everyone will become aware of what is happening to mother earth right now.
