The last straw: Efforts aim to reduce polluting piece of plastic

“To raise awareness of the waste created by single-use plastic, Sustainable Pittsburgh has partnered with 10 local restaurants for a ‘Straw Forward’ program this summer.

Afterward, the straws will be upcycled by national recycling company Terracycle, which uses straws to make park benches.”
