Our Markets with Urban Craft Uprising

Summer is here and the markets have started with Urban Craft Uprising.

Oh goodness Seattle!  Thank you for a great weekend once again.  We were a part of the Urban Craft Uprising part of the Seattle Street Food Festival.  All the wonderful food trucks in once place so you can try it all.  And of course one of our favorites, Soda Jerk with the Lemon Lavender drink.  We didn’t need to worry about needing a straw since we always have our Glass Straws with us.

We were in town from Saturday through Sunday.  Since the ban on plastic straws has it Seattle it was interesting to see all the different responses.  Some people still had no idea.  That had a lot to do with the fact that there were still a lot of plastic straws floating around.  So this weekend was spent not only helping people pick out the right glass straw and case for them but also talking about single use plastic pollution.

Summer Time!!

Summer is here!!

The sun is out and the water is cool, Summer is here!  Time to go to the beach or river, pack a picnic basket with an organic lunch and eco friendly glass straws, and soak up some sun. Plan a trail hike or or a lazy day at the lake. How about a relaxing camping trip or a fun concert festival? All of our customers are taking thier glass straws to summer events, concerts, fairs, and  Burning Man!

Don’t forget the water!  Stay hydrated and drink plenty of water.  And remember to bring your glass straws along with you.  This way you don’t have to use plastic straws when you are out.  And if you have a case for your straws then you can protect your glass straws and keep them clean. Remember to bring enough to trade or gift with your friends!

We hope you all have a safe and fun Summer.  Don’t forget to pick up your trash when you leave your places of fun.

This article from OurNationalParks.us shows just how much of an impact you can have!

According to Dana Soehn, volunteer coordinator for the park, volunteers spent 3,410 hours exclusively on litter patrol projects last year.

“We also spent another 4,518 hours cleaning up our backcountry trails and campsites and then another 3,352 hours on special patrols in the backcountry where we had to recover large amounts of litter left behind by unprepared hikers,” said Soehn. “Not only do the VIPs [volunteers in-park] help our park look better, but they also help us protect both the terrestrial and aquatic habitats, making them a cleaner, healthier environment.”
