No Thank You to Straws

Soda cup with straw and words “no thank you"Let’s get in the habit of saying, “No thank you,” to plastic straws.
Plastic straws are not recyclable in our area, they are small and flexible and fall through the sorting line at the recycling facility. If you end up with a straw, please dispose of it securely in a trash receptacle so it doesn’t end up littering our desert and mountains.
