Over the summer, I partnered with Newport Sea Base to present my campaign to six groups of campers attending their summer camps! Thank you Mr. Hartmann (left), Executive Director, Jack Nguyen, Program Director, and Zachary Nyquist (next photo), Education Coordinator, for having me and my sister at @newportseabase! We are so happy for this opportunity and hope we managed to inspire more kids to Skip the Plastic Straw!

Amazing news! San Francisco International Airport is banning the sale of single-use plastic water bottles starting August 20! The new rule will apply to airport restaurants, cafes and vending machines. Travelers will have to bring or buy refillable aluminum or glass bottles and refill at the many hydration stations at the airport. What a great step toward reducing landfill waste!

Businesses that have already stopped offering single-use plastic straws in Taiwan include @mcdonaldstw, @kfc, Breeze Center, @ikea_taiwan, @carrefourtaiwan, @decathlon_tw Group, @tgifridays, and @subway! ๐Ÿ‘๐Ÿผ๐Ÿ‘๐ŸผIt's estimated that Taiwanese go through 3 billion plastic straws๐Ÿ˜ฎ a year and is now expected to cut the number of plastic straws significantly โ€“ way to go, Taiwan! ๐Ÿ™Œ๐Ÿผ๐Ÿ’ช๐Ÿผ๐ŸŒŠ
