From Cedar Ridge Café & Bakery:
Look at how cool Amanda looks with her reusable metal straw! Be like Amanda and stop using plastic straws! Not sure how to do that? Don’t worry, we gotcha covered. We’re selling reusable metal straws for 3 bucks AND every time you bring it with you to the cafe you get 25¢ off your iced drink!!! Be kind the planet and be excellent to each other.
Editor’s Note: We did a little research on plastic straws to find out just how bad the situation is. This information is from the website Recyclebank:
“As plastic travels down conveyor belts while being sorted, small items like bottle caps and straws fall through the cracks and end up being sent to the landfill. As of right now there aren’t many (if any) special straw-recycling facilities either, which means when you use a straw, you know that plastic will sit in a landfill for years to come.”
“According to the National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration, plastic straws are one of the top five most common items found on our shores during International Coastal Cleanups. … In the United States alone, approximately 500 million plastic straws are used and discarded each day — enough straws to circumnavigate the planet two and a half times.”
But wait there’s more from Cedar Ridge:
Metal straws not enough for ya? Now we have upcycled koozies! Made by one of our customers mothers, out of thrifted sweaters! Use em for hot or cold drinks instead of cardboard sleeves! Cedar Ridge is changing the coffee drinking game in SOMa!
