Interested in going straw free on April 21st?
This project is born out of the desire to shift perspectives. Every time we serve a straw-free drink, it means one less item in our landfills, one less piece of plastic in our oceans. Small changes can make a big difference.
We believe that compassion should be an important part of every movement, and so we hope that you will feel free to provide straws to anyone who asks for them. This movement is about getting more conscious about the products we use and celebrating conservation. We are not interested in alienating your valued guests.
The Last Straw is a stepping stone. It is an experiment in a more mindful approach to the consumption of plastic resources in our industry. We invite you to partner with us in changing the way our industry uses straws. They don’t have to be an automatic step in bartending, or an element of standard drink presentation.
This event is important because we hope it will show you what is possible in the future. We would love to invite you to be a business that continues the straw-free initiative moving forward and to only hand out straws upon request. For the sake of our planet and all the animals we share it with, are you willing to let April 21s, and every day after, be The Last Straw?
