A 15-year-old activist is encouraging everyone to care for the earth by changing the way they drink.
When Milo Cress started knocking on the doors of restaurants in Vermont with his appeal that they stop serving straws, he was only 9 years old. Now, at 15, Milo’s campaign is still going strong. He travels all over the world and has spoken at many high schools to deliver his important message.
But why straws? Straws are one of the most common types of plastic littering beaches, with estimates showing that the number of straws Americans use every day could wrap around the Earth two and half times.
