CNN’s Van Jones Sucks

I apologize for that click-bait title. I try not to do that too much!

But, he said it himself in this recent video:

If you didn’t click on the video, I’ll fill you in on the joke.

CNN’s Van Jones sucks…on plastic, single-use straws.

The #StopSucking PSA is a commitment to do our level best to eliminate single-use waste.

Now, I get that getting rid of plastic straws doesn’t solve the problem.

But it does make us see things in a new perspective.

It teaches us to open our eyes and see other ways we can eliminate waste.

It makes us look with intention at our autopilot set of assumptions.

My personal ideal is Zero Waste, but at this point I can only claim “waste conscious”.

It’s a journey, but it starts with something like this.

So, my challenge to you is to #StopSucking in September. 

We’ve got a few days for mental preparation.


And don’t entertain the stress of completely eliminating the plastic straw forever.

Just commit to 30 days and see what happens.

I’ll be posting on the social media as a reminder as we get closer.
