Melanie and her husband have a son at CU in Boulder, CO, studying Environmental Science. In particular, he is studying snow. Because of this they have become passionate about eliminating single use plastic. Most people think of ocean trash as the greatest problem caused by plastic but the manufacture of plastic also has a devastating effect on our ozone and therefore, our weather. (Weather is especially important to a Colorado ski kid!) Be a part of the solution, with stainless steel straws. Shell Creek is a proud monthly supporter of Sierra Club.
