Project "Straw-Over": On March 17, 2019 we met at Marietta Square (Marietta, GA) to hand out alternative straws & plastic straw pollution facts. The purpose of the mission was to raise awareness about the damaging effects of plastic straws on our environment - in particular the ocean and all marine life. We had 12 businesses who accepted our Eco-friendly straw donations (paper & hay) and countless citizens who received some of thousands of Eco-friendly straws we distributed. We also gave away free coloring pages with the logo that was designed by Mrs. Martha Frew of Jackson Michigan. Thank You Mrs. Frew. Thank you HAY! Straws, Eco-pliant & Sea Straw Co for your generous donation of straws. HELPING ONGOING
