Good Food News - The Straw Poll

"No snowflake in an avalanche ever feels responsible."-Stanislaw Jerzy Lec

I was beyond impressed when I read this Inc. article about Ethiopia setting an epic World Record when in just 12 hours, they planted over 350 million trees! This is an environmental positive on a grand scale. And it got me thinking…

I showed you mine, now show me yours!

I showed you mine, now show me yours!

Often enough we may think “I’m just one person, what can I do?” But like the quote above says, if we ALL , who think of ourselves as just one person, work together we are a greater whole.

That brings me to The Straw Poll. I call on all of you to get out there and buy yourself a metal, glass or other reusable straw that you can carry with you. Maybe you’ll even buy some for family or friends. We are starting this on August 1st and I’m eager to see the change we can make by September 1st.

“It’s just a straw!”…well in Ethiopia, it was just a tree, and look at the impact they made!

Share this story on Facebook, Instagram, Twitter, wherever you wish, by copying and pasting this link http://bit.ly/SAFStraw_Poll, and use the hashtag #TheStrawPoll. Throw in a picture of your own reusable straw(s) .

Let’s see how far we can take this. How many of us individuals can make a real dent, an avalanche?
