Give a Sip!

The Problem

We want everyone to "Give a Sip!" Our goal is to eliminate the use of plastic straws. If needed, we hope the world will switch to bamboo drinking straws if straws are absolutely necessary. Plastic draws have proven to be detrimental to the environment because they are not recyclable, do not biodegrade, and pose a terrible threat to marine animals. Bamboo is the fastest growing plant in the world, absorbs CO2, gives off 35% more oxygen than trees, and regenerates itself after harvesting. It is completely renewable!

Our Plan

We will be targeting local restaurants beginning with those nearest to the coastline. By educating restaurant staff members and distributing educational materials for patrons, we think everyone will help this campaign be a successful one. We will also provide samples of bamboo straws for restaurants in order to ease the transition away from plastic straws.
