We rolled out a new initiative this weekend to offer metal straws as an alternative to the standard plastic straws when you enjoy our ice coffees in our shop. This has been something in the planning over the past couple of months and we hope to have your support too! You can read more about our thoughts about this switch and some details that happened behind the scenes before we got here through the bio link or here -> http://bit.ly/OneLessPlasticStraw The metal straws will only be available for in-house drinks for now and we also have them for sale if you like to get one for your own personal use! More bundle options will also be made available over the next few weeks so make sure to look out for them on our IG. So glad to be able to finally do our bit to have that #onelessplasticstraw 🥢 #nyloncoffee#nyloncoffeeroasters#nylonroasters#stopsucking#forastrawlessocean#cleanseas
WHY FOCUS ON PLASTIC STRAWS?
We already know that plastic bags and soda can rings are bad for the environment and end up in the ocean. Few people realize that straws are among the top 10 items found during beach clean ups and can do so much harm to seabirds, turtles and other marine creatures. As an item of convenience for the vast majority of us, we believe refusing the single-use plastic straw is the easiest and simplest way for everyone to take action today to address plastic pollution. If we all take the pledge to refuse single-use plastic straws we will see a significant decrease in the number of straws found during coastal cleanups.
HOW CAN I GET INVOLVED?
Accept and challenge someone else to #StopSucking as part of our viral social media challenge!
Our oceans are home to many beautiful living organisms and as humans who are we to destroy these homes? Imagine coming home one day to your living room filled with one-use plastic products. A reality we are fortunate not to face. Let’s protect the inhabitants of Earths oceans, starting with a straw-free #Ottawa! Take the challenge and refuse the straw next time you order a drink 🌊💕 • • #stopsucking#savethefishies#savetheturtles#ottawa#strawfree
