the list

This was sent to us from PCNA and support their products. Also, I want to mention, I think the straw thing is silly. Just don’t use straws. or maybe (rinse) and reuses a plastic for the whole year. Our industries love of straw substitutes is a little odd to me.

2020 has changed the way we live. And during this pandemic, people everywhere are shifting focus to the things that matter most, like their health. But to care for our own health isn’t enough. We also must do our part to protect the planet. After all, we’ve only got one, and it’s important that we take advantage of this opportunity for progress in the fight against climate change.

In honor of the everyday eco-friendly decisions we can all take, we’ve put together a list of some easy ways to send a message of eco-friendliness and actually eco-friendly at the same time. Amplify your brand with these reusable products that can easily replace their disposable counterparts.
