National Skip the Straw Day
February 26, 2021 All day
We owe our strawless celebrations on National Skip the Straw Day, the fourth Friday in February, falling on February 26 this year, to a group of young activists in Whitehall, Michigan. In light of the ongoing battle against global warming and plastic pollution, we’ll take the time this holiday to consider whether we really need that whimsical plastic tube in order to enjoy our favorite beverages. We can slurp more down by just going straight for the glass’s edge anyway!
