The war on plastic has certainly spread far and wide, with single use plastic straws being the latest recipient of controversy.
It is estimated that more than 500 million single-use plastic straws are used and thrown away every day in the U.S. alone. That's an average rate of 1.6 straws per person per day, which translates to 175 billion straws per year.
We here at Simple Abundance are fighting the fight. We are saying goodbye to plastic straws and will be making the switch
to paper straws this month.
We encourage you to refuse a straw, which is the most eco-friendly option, but should you feel the need to have a straw, it will be of the paper variety.
We do have stainless steel straws available for purchase.
And while we're at it, we should remind you to bring your reusable bag when you come to visit us, because in the very
near future we will only be packing your groceries in the boxes they originally were shipped to us in.
Help us to spread the word!
The goodies continue throughout the summer!
Ruth will be delivering her scrumptious baked goods every Monday and Friday to us, so be sure to stay stocked up!
*Products will NOT be available June 11-27.
