It is estimated that Australian’s use 10,000,000 straws every day! And all of them get just one use, before they get ditched, some escaping into the environment, and plenty of them making their way into our ocean and onto our beaches.
That is why 14-year-old Olivia and her 15-year-old brother Carter are launching their global “OneLessStraw Pledge Campaign” in Sept/Oct of this year. Olivia and Carter realised that reducing our plastic footprint could be very easy to do; we just need to say ‘NO’ to single-use plastics such as straws.
The www.OneLessStraw.org website is now live and has lots of resources and a cool interactive map which will track the progress of the campaign around the country and even around the world.
As you can see, the campaign is designed to be fun and produce long-lasting results. We encourage everyone to download the pledge forms from our website or complete the online version.
Thank you in advance for helping us make sure this campaign is a huge success by sharing with everyone you know and please be sure to email us your signed pledge form today.
“Remember, anybody can make a difference… if we can, you can too.”
