Need a straw?

That's a question most servers do not ask. They usually just give us straws,whether we want them or not.

Two years ago, nine-year old Milo thought that was ridiculous. He found that 500 million straws go to landfills each day. So he started the Be Straw Free campaign  to encourage bars, restaurants and other businesses to stop this wasteful practice.

Kudos to Milo for this initiative, and kudos to Kingsmill Resort for being the first in our area of Virginia to jump on the straw-free bandwagon. Let me know of others.
