#NoStrawNovember

"Communities that are disconnected from the ocean are where we need to help build awareness. If you don’t see the ocean, river, lake or stream on a daily basis, you may not feel so compelled to help our planet." - Shelby O'Neil, Jr Ocean Guardians

We just wrapped a segment on #plasticstraws and #biodegradable and #reusable alternatives 😁🙋 We learnt about and visited some big chains and some small heroes who are making meaningful and permanent changes to their #plastic use and it’s so exciting to hear! ✨ is it enough though?

Single-use plastic straws campaigns must be a personal, local, country, and global movement
#StrawFreeSac #thelaststraw #onelessstraw ●source: @Regranned from @knowyourfish - We are proud to announce the launch of The Last Straw campaign in Chennai. We are joining the global movement against single-use plastics and siding with the oceans. We are partnering with popular bars, restaurants and hotels to kick off the campaign. So if your drink doesn't come with a straw, you know why! This poster is going to start going up all over the city shortly - please take a photo and tag us with the hashtag you see on it.

The Silver Line Tap Room in Trumansburg NY (near Ithaca) is another cool pub and music venue that took part in #NoStrawNovember and now #DontSuckDecember. Think about how many single-use plastic straws will they will save!
.
When you're at a place that gives out plastic straws remember to say #NoStrawPlease, and please re-post this so others can get involved. #PlasticFreeChallenge #StrawsSuck #StopSucking

I’m aware this collage is HIDEOUSLY cringe, but last month I did #nostrawnovember
*
I took on the challenge after feeling deeply frustrated with the little choice I had in SAYING NO. Bars and restaurants just place straws in drinks without even thinking- you never get asked, staff rarely care when you refuse and certainly small martinis (like bottom left) DON’T warrant one!
*
This was a funny social experiment to try out in London. To start, I felt shy when asking and bartenders would often glance back in shock. It’s funny that I felt my most awkward when trying to carry out a good act!
*
However I persevered - even managing to refuse straws at my drunkest hours. I officially did not suck 1 straw in November, so I’m showing how you can ALL do it too!!! #fridayfeels

Según una investigación de SEAS AT RISK, España consume un 10% de todos los residuos de un solo uso del total de la UE. En nuestro país se consumen al año 3.500 millones de botellas de plástico, 1.500 millones de vasos desechables de café, 50.000 millones de colillas, 207 millones de envases desechables y 5.000 millones de pajitas de plástico. Cantidades ingentes de estos residuos de un solo uso terminan en las playas europeas y contribuyen al aumento de la masa de plástico con contamina mares y océanos. #byebyestraws #strawwars #stopsucking #noplasticstraws #refuseplasticstraws #strawlessocean #saynotoplasticstraws #strawless #skipthestraw #ocean #savetheocean #stopoverfishing #plasticocean #nostrawplease #thelaststraw #plasticchange #nostrawnovember #seasatrisk #plastic #spain #europe #plasticwaste #takeaway #coffee #refusesingleuse

We love this!! Don’t forget to get in your #nostrawnovember tally sheets! #Repost @alycastel ・・・
This utensil pouch is a perfect conversation starter at lunch! #noexcuseforsingleuse Did you know that Plastic is now found in almost every marine habitat on Earth, and we’re producing more than we can sustainably manage.
By carrying reusable utensils and straws we can cut back on single-use plastic!

Hi! We are in the final days of November, we hope you are enjoying single-use straw avoidance, single use plastic awareness, and gratitude for the environment. We also hope that although we are nearing the end of #nostrawnovember you keep going!
Keep those good habits, thoughtful choices, and our planet’s future in mind all year round and pass it on.

Again, No Straw November is a pledge to refuse single-use plastic straws during the entire month. It’s a choice you make and a way to take action against plastic pollution. Thank you for helping make this a wonderful #transformationtuesday

Share any tips and tricks you’ve picked up along with the pledge path.
#strawssuck #stopsucking #protectourcoastandocean from #plasticpollution #cheers @jr.ocean.guardians @surfrider
Keep asking “ Do you NEED that plastic straw?”

Plastic straws are one of the main ocean plastic polluters. After seeing how many straws we can go through in the course of one month (297) it’s obvious there needs to be a change. I’m ditching straws for good - challenge yourself to do the same!

Coconut water tastes just as good without a straw! Did anyone else participate in #NoStrawNovember? My experience with eliminating single-use plastics is on the blog, link in bio!
.
Even though November's over, it's never too late to make a difference for our oceans and our health by using less single-use plastics such as the straw 💙🌊 Protect what you love!

Most frustrating #zerowaste moment? Waters delivered with straws from the start. It's these small societal changes that we need to work towards. @balboa_grandview #stopsucking #NoStrawNovember #plasticfree #plastickillsmermaids #zerowaste

📌November 30th - Final Day of #NoStrawNovember! Don’t worry, if you missed it (like I did #latergram), start with decreasing your own straw use! Americans use approximately 500 million straws per year estimated by the National Park Service. Although straws may not be the biggest contributor to the 8 MILLION TONS of plastic trash (National Geographic) that flow into Earth’s oceans every year; they are less likely than other plastics to reach a trash bin.
Your single action may seem small, but as a collective effort, it helps to prevent negative impacts like this! In 2015, this video of a Costa Rican sea turtle found with a straw lodged in his nostril went viral. Full video on YouTube😓.

Last night's #Malibu screening of #strawsfilm was a great event & example of #documentary film providing discussion & valuable time to reflect on important #refusesingleuse #microplastics #plasticpollutes topics. This is how #communityaction and @cityofmalibu with Orgs like @crayoncollection @plasticpollutes @thebayfoundation and activists @aarriadevoe artists @thejoesumner come together to make a sea of change!
