Why Environmental Safe Straws And Where To Find Them

25 views

Published on

http://www.EnviroSafeStraws.com Hello! I'm Melissa "Missy" Lapworth-Kuehl and have been an educator for 25 years (well maybe a few more but who's counting?)

I love teaching! I love the children, families, my awesome school and colleagues and feel lucky to be so fulfilled by my profession. So why the straws? Because I was taught at an early age (by my mom who was my scout leader) to leave nature better than I found it.

When I was little I thought that meant to pick up litter and make sure your trash was in the trash can. I never really thought about where that trash was going. How about making less trash all together?

What a novel idea! So I teach (not preach to) my students about it and you know what, they deeply care. And they want to help. And they love little straws.

  6. 6. MOST RESTAURANTS SERVE STRAWS... ...without your having to say a word. Plastic straws and plastic in general is everywhere. It's no wonder that Americans use so many straws most of which end up in landfills and far too many in the ocean.

  8. 8. By using stainless steel straws every one of us can change that, permanently, one beverage at a time!
  9. 9. Stainless steel straws will not degrade over time and last for decades. They don't pollute like plastic or break and shatter like glass.
  10. 10. Stainless steel straws are a wonderful choice for your cold beverage, hot coffee and tea, thick blended smoothies or for that ice cold water when you sit down at a restaurant.
  11. 11. FUND RAISING As an educator I am very aware of the difficulties many teachers have in getting the level of funding they really need to provide for the highest possible education for their students.
  12. 12. In response, I am establishing a program where Enviro Safe Straws will work with Educators on fundraising activities and promotions. I have also established a fund that reserves a percentage of the profits from EnviroSafeStraws.com to be used to assist educators throughout the country who need to raise funds to assist their students.
  13. 13. OUR ENVIRONMENT OUR HEALTH… It's easy to understand that if we use less plastic there will be less of it to contaminate our precious environment and harm wildlife. How often do we think of the potential health affects of using plastic straws and food containers?
  14. 14. "Most plastic products release estrogenic chemicals: A potential health problem that can be solved" this according to a report in Environmental Health Perspectives hormone-disrupting chemicals leach from almost all plastic's, even BPA-free plastics.
  15. 15. Don't you agree that maybe the less we use plastics to hold and consume our food, the better off we will be? We sure think so! Using stainless steel straws just makes sense! www.EnviroSafeStraws.com
