No Straw, Please!

When dining out, simply request “no straw” with your beverage to help reduce trash. Most of us don’t use a drinking straw with our glass of water at home, so why use one when out? Over 500 million plastic straws are used and discarded every day in the United States alone — that’s 175 billion a year going to landfills and littering our oceans. Go a step further and ask your favorite establishment to only provide a straw when requested by a customer.

If you notice a hole in the upper left-hand corner of your Farmers' Almanac, don't return it to the store! That hole isn't a defect; it's a part of history. Starting with the first edition of the Farmers' Almanac in 1818, readers used to nail holes into the corners to hang it up in their homes, barns, and outhouses (to provide both reading material and toilet paper). In 1919, the Almanac's publishers began pre-drilling holes in the corners to make it even easier for readers to keep all of that invaluable information (and paper) handy.
