We are a member of Heal the Bay, and we are going to make a difference, a little at a time
Many restaurants automatically serve plastic straws, which in most cases are totally unnecessary Even then, most of these straws end up in landfills at best, and in oceans at worst, where they choke sea creatures. From today we will start by only giving out straws if somebody asks for one. ‘
