When I received this picture from the Alaska SeaLife Center in Seward, Alaska I was really impressed by their promotional idea. No it's not Senator Murkowski holding the straws, although that's kind of cool, it's the way they are promoting their cause. I'm not quite sure what they are using to hold the straws in the background but there are plenty of things that can do the trick. This promotional idea can work for so many different events... it's worth considering at your next event. Don't forget the stainless steel straws.
