Millennium Fellowship Project: Banning the Straw That Will Break Mother Nature’s Back
Our plan was to ban plastic straws on campus. We talked with companies and local businesses to accomplish our goal. We did a table stand to spread the word to students and staff on what were doing. We then ended with an event. We now have paper straws.
