It all started at a cookie booth sale. As they were selling Girl Scout Cookies, Lauren and her fellow Girl Scouts were approached by a Mansfield resident requesting their help in reducing the high number of plastic straws being used in town. “She shared a link to a viral video of a sea turtle that had a plastic straw stuck up its nose,” says Lauren, “and after watching, I knew I had to do something.” Lauren started researching this issue, and learned plastic straws are not easily recyclable because they are too lightweight to make it through mechanical recycling sorters.
