Single use plastics are a huge threat to our environment. In fact, Americans use 500+ million plastic straws every day! On Saturday April 14th, Grades of Green Youth Corps Eco-leaders joined the Strawless Saturdays Campaign in Downtown Manhattan Beach, California. Youth Corps students and Grades of Green staff canvassed local restaurants to encourage them to replace plastic straws with paper or stainless steel alternatives, and to only offer straws upon request.
