Featured Project

Shedd the Straw Campaign

Go Green Wilmette is participating in Shedd Aquarium’s Shedd the Straw campaignto reduce Chicagoland’s use of plastic straws that harm marine life and contribute to pollution and landfill waste. Americans use about 500 million straws a day – the same weight as 1,000 cars! Since plastic straws do not biodegrade and are nearly impossible to recycle, almost every straw that has ever been used still exists on the planet. You can help by not purchasing straws for home use and telling your server that you do not want a straw when you order a drink. Ask your favorite restaurant to join Shedd Aquarium’s Shedd the Straw campaign. Learn more here:
