Woodmere woman aims for sustainability
By: Matthew Ferremi writing for LI Herald.com
A Woodmere resident has started a business that is looking to make the world more eco-friendly. Julia Piri is the co-owner of UseMe LIFE, a business that is looking to develop sustainable products such as reusable metal straws that aim to reduce the amount of harmful pollutants in the environment.
Piri said the idea for the business came to her roughly a year and a half ago when she took a trip to Ireland. “My boyfriend and I went to a corner store in Ireland to get basic groceries,” Piri said. “We noticed that they didn’t give out plastic bags and we were looking silly carrying our groceries in the street. Despite this, we realized that we in the United States are behind when it comes to being eco-friendly.”
