Great Lakes water levels/Stroodles biodegradable pasta straws

October 25, 2019

The Great Lakes, which supplies 20 percent of the world’s surface fresh water, are currently at dangerously high levels. Scientists are starting to understand how climate change is connected and we’re joined by University of Michigan researcher Andrew Gronewald.  

When it comes to reducing plastic waste, a lot of places have been getting rid of plastic straws and switching to paper. But that requires resources too. But what about a waste-free option?  Stroodles are pasta straws that could be a novel, viable - and edible - alternative. We're joined by Maxim Gelmann, Stroodle Founder.
