from PAULA DiPERNA
To the Editor:
I am often asked by people “what can we do?” about this or that, so I’ve begun a personal program called “Resist, Reject, Rebel.”
Below is a list of simple acts we can all undertake that would ameliorate an assortment of problems we face as a society.
1) Plastics in the ocean: Reject all drinks with a plastic straw. Send back the straw and ask the
restaurant to stop using them.
