Lesley always gives us lots of fantastic ideas on how we can all help our environment and reduce rubbish!
Today she shared with us a local initiative by a cafe to get rid of unnecessary plastic straws by using re-useable metal straws. Plastic straws cannot be recycled and have been found causing terrible harm to animal life. You may have seen the picture that circulated the internet recently of the turtle who ended up having one pulled from its nose .
Her simple message to us was next time we order a drink we could make a difference by simply saying "No straw please".
Lesley also showed us some great options for creating funky re-useable shopping bags so that we stop using plastic bags.
Check out this cool one made from a t-shirt from the Op shop! Look out for one of Lesley's workshops on how to make these in the school holidays.
