Wishing everyone to stay well. Also wishing this experience will help create a positive shift in consciousness so that we reduce polarization and realize our ultimate connectedness - to each other and to the earth. Our actions do matter - from social distancing for others to considering if we should use more reusable items vs single-use items. We are in this together. Along those lines - thanks Jackson businesses for doing your part and for restaurants for offering to-go food and being flexible.

Here's to acting locally - working with other local companies - but thinking globally. We are using Stinky Prints to make our stickers and they are excited to participate. They even had our sticker on their reusable travel mug they took with them to Baja to see the turtles! Reminding us - not to give up and what we do does matter - increasing awareness and spreading the word. And hopefully keep plastics out of our waterways. #stinkyprints #jacksonhole #5gyresambassador #strawlessocean #strawlessrivers #strawlessmountains #stopsucking #savetheturtles ... See MoreSee Less

Did your team win? Great news either way that there were no plastic cups! If you bought water it was in a aluminum can and if you bought a beer or drink it came in an aluminum cup- all truly recyclable! And plastic straws were served upon request only. Way to spread awareness. Let’s shoot for that at more of our own local events. Repost@plasticpollutes ... See MoreSee Less

When you ask - why does the straw matter- the answer is it opens the door to the question - what else can we do? Well, Berkeley has done just that - banned plastic bags then straws and now charging users for disposable cups. Under this ordinance disposable cups, plates and cutlery will need to be truly compostable. In addition, in-house establishments will need to use reusable dining ware not disposable. Hopefully the charge on the disposable cups will lead to users bringing their own to-go cups too. Big picture, one positive change leads to another and another- with it all adding up - person by person. We don’t need to wait for a ban though - establishments and users can start taking proactive steps to reduce their use of disposables - particularly plastic single use items. Hey, the reusable to go cups they make today are so much better anyway- keeping your drink cold or hot! Mine even has a cool drawing of a llama on it! ... See MoreSee Less

The handicapped really need straws. The bring your own cup will only destabilize the would be sterile environment and only spread disease, bacteria and viruses. There are better ways to alleviate this environmental problem. Not blanket laws or rules.

Repost @storyofstuff. It’s true that we need to do all we can do as individuals to reduce our footprint but it is time for larger-scale changes to be made. Our buying choices matter as well as doing all we can do to make it clear that we don’t want companies to keep producing all this plastic. It’s time that they step up as well. Stop the problem at the source. However - in the meantime - let’s keep doing all we can do and be the change we want to see ... See MoreSee Less
