If you are a bar, restaurant or another establishment in Newport, Rhode Island make a commitment to stop offering plastic straws and stirrers. If people ask for a straw, offer a sustainable alternative.
*NOTE* Compostable plastic straws made of "bio materials" that require a compost facility are no better than regular plastic straws when they enter the marine environment. That's why we support the switch to paper straws or another sustainable alternative such as bamboo, stainless steel or glass.
As the owner/general manager of the establishment listed below, I’m voluntarily joining Strawless by the Sea to stop plastic pollution at the source!
