Mainstreaming sustainability, one straw at a time!
Israel is still a country that loves single use plastics (SUPs). Most consumers and businesses see it as a cheap, hygienic material to be used as much as possible, sometimes even as a way to avoid doing the dishes at home! I started raising awareness with a simple action that gained a lot of success in the UK and elsewhere- straws!
I founded a campaign called Straw Free Israel and we work to educate consumers & businesses about the environmental and health risks of SUPs, and to offer non-plastic alternatives. In this way we encourage a zero waste sustainable lifestyle and help to conserve our precious marine ecosystem that Israeli's so dearly love!
