The Last Straw
Team Marine members recently collected and sorted about 20,000 straws to donate to The Last Straw Program by the 5 Gyres Institute and the Algalita Marine Research Foundation. The goal of this program is to build a fully functional boat out of single-use straws, in order to spread awareness about our oceans' transformation into a plastic soup. Single-use straws are unnecessary and contribute to our planet's massive problem with plastic pollution, so do not use them!
