WHERE TO PURCHASE PAPER STRAWS ON CAPE ANN?

Plastic straw stuck in a turtle’s nostril.

Have you made the switch to glass, paper, bamboo, or metal straws? I love paper straws, they are much easier on wildlife and the environment, and am looking for a local place to purchase. Paper straws are carried randomly at the grocery market and I can find them online, but I was wondering if our readers know who might carry them locally, and with consistency, which led me to wondering also, have any of our local restaurants made the switch to anything-but-plastic straws?

We would love to support these businesses. Please write and let us know if you know of a source and/or of a restaurant. Thank you!
