Today marks the first day of No Straw November, Girl Scout Shelby O’Neil’s Gold Award Project!
Join fellow Girl Scouts and Jr. Ocean Guardians in protecting the ocean and beach environment by reducing the number of disposable plastic straws used in the month of November.
80% of all marine debris found in the ocean is land based, and 80-90% of the marine debris is made from plastic.
Girls will take a pledge to decrease the number of disposable plastic straws they use in the month of November.
- November 1 — Download, sign and submit the “No Straw November” pledge.
- Download the “No Straw November” tally sheet. Track the number of times you say, “No, thank you” to using a disposable straw.
- November 30 — Submit completed tally form and purchase your patch.
Go to Jr. Ocean Guardians for “No Straw November” pledge and tally sheet.
“I have over 1,000 Girl Scouts from all over the USA which includes 90 Girl Scout Troops and individual Girl Scouts who have taken the pledge, including 6 Troops in Okinawa Japan!” says Shelby.
