Today we’re talking to Greg Willybiro, a man who once never imagined going vegan. However since making the switch he’s been inspired to help others, not only see veganism for themselves, but to also think about how every one of us can do something to collectively make the world a better place. He is fulfilling his mission with the creation of Turfue Straws, a company that provides a solution to the waste that plastic straws create in our environment.
