If you’ve seen the videos, you know it’s heartbreaking. It’s an astounding problem. As a mom, I want to help do my part by refusing plastic straws and helping others do the same by offering reusable stainless steel straw sets. Shop our Etsy store to get a set for yourself and feel good about making a difference!

Imagine if everyday your home was being slowly destroyed but you were forced to live in it and you couldn’t say or do anything about it. Wouldn’t you like to have someone to protect and defend the place you love? It’s time for us to speak up for marine wildlife because they can’t do it themselves.

Happy 1 year plastic-straw-free birthday Electra House Adelaide!!! They did this amazing post today and the other in October 2017 of which I shared with my friends and got LOADS of likes!
This didn't happen through a ban on plastic straws. This happened due to the amazing work of @thelaststrawaus asking venues to only serve straws on request, and venues embracing the challenge and change!
As you can see, not everyone likes it, but the environment sure does! Less pollution and less use of a non-renewable resource!
Thank you also to 42 Below for supplying venues with reusable stainless steel straws! (Look closely 😉) Repost @electrahouseadl

We said we'd have more good @grilldburgers news soon! We've been working with the team to remove plastic straws from EVERY ONE OF THEIR 130 VENUES AROUND AUSTRALIA! That's a cool 1.6 MILLION plastic straws not going into the waste system every year. What's more, they've partnered with amazing organisation @terracycle to collect their old straws responsibly. This is only one part of their new sustainability plan, with more details about other changes being made in their restaurants across the country. Snaps to Grill'd for being (as far as we know) the first big restaurant chain in Australia that has removed plastic straws from use 👏👏👏 We can’t wait to see venues along the QLD coast make the switch 👏🏼 @grilldburgers #burgers#healthyburger#laststraw#fastfood#foodie#waronwaste#plasticsucks#grilld
I will never forget the first time I heard a client say this. After years of doing what was expected, paying more attention to others’ opinions than her own inner voice, and honoring the ‘shoulds’ instead of truly acting with intention, she was ready to do things differently. Maybe you can relate; if not, please recognize that an awareness like this and commitment to change requires great courage.
It was an honor to partner with her on this journey from ‘watered-down’ to filled up and ready to share the best of herself from that place of fulfillment. For her, much of this meant clarifying her purpose and priorities, shifting her mindset, taking time for what matters most, and seeing how honoring her values and intentions had a ripple effect to her children, her community, her coworkers, and beyond. Many of the steps were simple, daily shifts that added up to significant change. .
Have you ever felt like a watered-down version of yourself? What helped fill you up and lift you higher? Share one of your tips below! 🙌🏻
