Fight Plastic Pollution
The Problem: Plastic from our everyday life is damaging our environment and we want to do something about it.
The Solution: Our teammate Sylvia had already started promoting metal straws so we decided to help her scale up. With your help we want to go to 3 different local restaurants and try to see if they will use metal straws instead of plastic ones.
The Theory of Change: We think that if we can demonstrate that metal straws do not hurt the customer experience in restaurants, and may even help, that we will be able to convince more and more restaurants to move away from plastic straws.
The Ask: We are asking for $250 to get this project started. We plan on using most of this money for the straws themselves, with some money for printing and a stipend for editing the Impact Video we send you when we are finished.
