Hello, everyone! My name is Sophia Bickerton from Troop 809. I am currently working on my Gold Award project to reduce Austin’s use of unnecessary plastic, starting with plastic straws. Please check out my webpage, which includes information about my efforts: skipthestrawproject.wixsite.com/skipthestraw.
To take the project to the next phase (distributing reusable straws to individuals and persuading local businesses to switch to paper straws), I am in need of funding, so I have created a number of fun sea turtle-themed products – shirts, hoodies, mugs, tote bags, and stickers, that anyone can purchase to support my “Skip the Straw” project. The products are available for purchase under the “Products” tab on my webpage: skipthestrawproject.wixsite.com/skipthestraw. All proceeds will go towards the cause. Take a look, and please spread the word!
