The Zero Waste Wellesley Challenge Item of the Month for March is plastic straws.
Plastic straws are not recyclable according to our RDF and thus go directly into waste and landfills.
Plastic straws are among the top 10 contributors to plastic marine debris across the globe. Please stop and think when you order drinks from your favorite restaurant or coffee shop.
REFUSE the straw or ASK for a recyclable/compostable alternative!
