A single plastic straw might not seem like much. But since straws can rarely be recycled, they typically don't go away. So when you tally up all the straws used in a day, a week, a month, it adds up to a huge problem for turtles, fish, seals, and other wildlife. It also impacts people, as the chemicals from plastics travel up the food chain.

We can do better.

Members of the New York City Council have proposed a bill to rid the city of single-use plastic straws. We're asking restaurants and businesses to be champions for the cause, working to remove these straws from their daily operations or serve them only upon request, in turn raising awareness of the plastic pollution that threatens our world.

Joining the campaign is simple. All you need to do is pledge to eventually eliminate single-use plastic straws. Some suggestions to make it super easy:

We also ask that you communicate about your participation publicly where and when it makes sense for you (we'll provide social shares, owned and earned media opportunities, and other business activities).
