Heather Kerstetter, 29, doesn’t drive, she doesn’t use plastic bags at grocery stores and she uses reusable water bottles but she can’t give up plastic straws. Her resistance comes down to sustainability — her own.
Kerstetter, a disability advocate and Master’s of Social Work Candidate at Temple University, said she needs to use plastic straws to be able to drink, adding that other straw options are not as reliable or don’t work for her situation.
