Be the change you wish to see….

It makes me so happy to know that the next generation(s) are being raised to refuse single use plastic. For my kids, bringing our own straw and refusing a lid is the norm. A month or so ago, I had taken our straws in to wash them and forgotten to put them back in the vehicle. We went out to eat and I accepted a straw, as I tend to dump ice water all over myself when the ice shifts if I try to drink out of a cup. My Son: MOM, you taught us to say no to straws, what the heck are you doing?! Total straw shaming, and it made me SO proud!

While shopping, my Son helps find the option with the least amount of plastic. We needed bunny food today. I grabbed a medium sized bag, but it was plastic. He says: Mom, the larger bag is paper, and then we won’t need food for a very long time too. Yes, yes Son, you are absolutely right! So, SO proud.Oh, and he’s 8!

Here’s our set-up. Not cheap for the 4 Decorative Dots straws + the hemp carrier (from GlassDharma), but as a family of 4, this is perfect for us! I’m a firm believer in making quality investments that will last many, many years. 100% made in USA, reusable, eco-friendly¬†materials, win-win-win! And seriously, while I feel like my kiddos don’t listen at times, when I really want them to, they show me they are paying attention… Be the change you wish to see in the world!
