Join our movement to reduce plastic straw pollution by piloting a straw-on-request program for one month. Eliminate plastic straws by only providing paper straws upon request.
What We Do
The Portland Chapter provides:
- 600 Portland Surfrider-branded Aardvark* paper straws (*Access to continual discount code available after pilot is completed)
- Social media promotion of your business
- Staff educational & informative presentation
- Promotional materials: graphics for bill inserts and/or table tents, and DitchTheStraw buttons for staff
- Coordination and support with managers and staff as needed to support the pilot
Businesses only offering straws on request have reduced straw consumption by 40%, leading to cost savings and reducing their environmental impact!
