From the Environmental Defenders of McHenry County:
Environmental Defenders of McHenry County business member Riverbottom Ice Cream Co. located in Algonquin and owner Bob Novak, demonstrate the switch from plastic straws to paper as part of The Environmental Defenders’ Last Straw Project.
With a business so close to the Fox River, this ensures that plastic straws will not enter the water or environment from this establishment.
The Last Straw Project advocates for replacing plastic straws with paper and declining straws when dining out. We encourage restaurants and cafes all over McHenry County to ask if patrons need a straw.
