Although that is admirable, it does seem pretty unrealistic for most people.

Have you heard the exciting news?? We are jumping on the “No Plastic Straws” train and phasing out plastic straws in all our stores!
At Down to Earth, Earth Day is one of our favorite days of the year. We love promoting sustainable practices to help keep our Earth healthy!
