Plastic Straws Suck is an initiative encouraging people to use less plastic straws. It’s simple, when you order drinks, request “no straw please,” and suck less.
Often, we use plastic straws without needing them, or really thinking about them. Unfortunately, many straws then end up in landfill, or make their way to the ocean, filling out ocean with plastic and injuring marine life.
What can you do to help? It’s simple.
If you’re an individual, just request “no straw please,” whenever you order a drink, or bring your own re-usable straw.
If you own a restaurant or bar, ask your employees to provide straws only when requested, or offer alternatives to plastic straws (metal, glass or paper straws).
Finally, encourage your friends to also use less plastic straws, and one day, society might suck less.
