Make Waiheke Plastic Straw Free

This petition had 529 supporters

Straw Free Waiheke is committed to make Waiheke plastic straw free.

We're already halfway there with 37 venues pledging to ditch plastic straws. But we need your help, and your voice, to achieve the dream of ridding our island paradise of plastic straws?

Over 500,000 straws are being produced every day globally. Unfortunately, a vast majority of these straws end up in our streets and seas. In a year, it has been estimated that at least 1 million seabirds and 100,000 marine mammals and sea turtles are harmed when they entangle themselves in or ingest plastic pollution littered in our oceans.

We are asking our cherished local venues to ditch the plastic straws by:

1. Not putting straws in drinks unless asked

2. Using paper straws, or reusable bamboo or stainless steel ones

It’s such a simple change, and the impact would be huge!

Today: Straw Free Waiheke is counting on you
