Virginia Beach Public Utilities advises that a boil water notice is immediately in effect for some residences in the Thoroughgood neighborhood due to a water main break causing a localized loss of water pressure. This boil water notice will remain in effect until at least 9 p.m. on Friday, Sept. 15. The department will issue an update tomorrow, after they have completed the first 24 hours of water sample testing. All water samples collected must meet state and federal drinking water standards before the “boil water” notice can be lifted. Additional details and exact addresses impacted can be found at virginiabeach.gov/news

Single-use and not recyclable, Americans dispose of an astounding 13 billion pounds of paper towels every year. To make one ton of paper towels requires 17 trees and 20,000 gallons of water. This means that to satisfy our addiction, 110 million trees are cut down each year.
Minimize the impact on the environment and your budget by switching from paper towels to washable and reusable rags.

According to the Be Straw Free Campaign through the National Parks Service, Americans use enough plastic straws to fill up 125 school buses worth every day! Plastic straws are not recyclable, so that's an incredible amount of plastic that ends up becoming microplastic.
When possible, skip the straw. If one is needed, opt for a reusable straw.
