An Open Letter

Lisa Kaas Boyle is an attorney, a consultant, a writer, and a mermaid. In an open letter to a popular chain of coffee shops, she calls attention to the plastic pollution caused by their containers and straws.

"Plastic straws and stirrers are the Number 7 most common item found on beaches worldwide on International Coastal Cleanup day, the single largest volunteer effort on the planet and source of valuable data for what ails our seas."

The article at Huffington Post Green contains the hard facts around plastic pollution, as well as the steps you can take so that you do not add to the problem. Don't make a mermaid cry.

Even if you don't live near the coast, you can still have your own community cleanup day. Look for plastic bottles and cups scattered around your neighborhood. Save them for your community recycling day.

Dancing Mermaids

This just in from Benbrook, Texas: NBC-5 of Dallas / Fort Worth has the story of wheelchair dancing mermaids in Benbrook. For young girls in wheelchairs, dance routines and a touch of mermaid magic make all the difference.

"The girls have come up with their own adaptations of the 'Whip and Nae Nae' dance and for their big recital, they wore sparkly mermaid tails and danced to a song from The Little Mermaid."

The best part is, the girls are loving it! Check out the article by Amanda Guerra for the full story.

Tails and Fins

In a recent blog post, Stephanie Nelson of NieNie Dialogues tells us how much the girls are loving their new mermaid tails. Of course they are! Stephanie has one, too!

The boys haven't been left out, they are enjoying their new shark fins.

Plenty of great photos in the article, be sure to check it out.

Best wishes and starfishes,
