The Old Greenwich community promoted plastic conservation at the Skip the Straw Greenwich Kickoff Celebration at Old Greenwich School on Sunday.

The Skip the Straw initiative urges restaurant-goers to resist using a plastic straw and restauranteurs to provide plastic straw alternatives.

The event featured conservation info booths and sustainable merchandise, words from event organizer Julie DesChamps and ambassadors of Girl Scout Troop 50557, and an official proclamation by First Selectman Peter Tesei.
