With this tropical weather in The Netherlands, I could really use a green refreshing smoothie. A jar full of good nutrients and with a fresh lemon ginger twist. I would say: a match made in heaven 🙂
And did you notice the bamboo straws, a present from my husband when he came back from Bali. Not that you have to go to Bali to buy reusable bamboo straws, but that fact that it was a present that fits so well with my journey, makes them the best straws in the world. Did you know that an estimated 500 million straws are used each day in America and after they are used, they are littered. They enter the ocean by drains, and beaches. I think we all agree that this should stop especially because there are plenty of good alternatives at hand.
Will you join me in giving up single-use plastic straw?
Don’t forget to enjoy your refreshing green smoothie!
