Ways to Reduce
Buy Reusable Straws
Cut down on your use of disposable plastic by switching to stainless steel, silicone, glass or paper straws. Find more eco-friendly straw options.
Make Stainless Steel Straws
If you want to get crafty, try making a set of stainless steel straws. Metal straws are safe and reusable, unlike paper or plastic straws.
Refuse the Straw
When you go out to a bar, restaurant or coffee shop, refuse the straw. When you place your order, tell your server right away that you don’t need one.
Donate Reusable Straws
Reusable straws can be donated just like any other reusable barware or tableware.
