Go #Straw-Free-With-LMC This Earth Day

On Earth Day, April 22, 2018, as part of our upcoming Blue Table Initiative, Loggerhead Marinelife Center has partnered with local restaurants and The City of West Palm Beach Mayor’s Office of Sustainability to go #StrawFreewithLMCStrawFreeWithLMC photo  For this event, the restaurants listed have agreed to refrain from offering plastic straws to their patrons on Earth Day, Sunday, April 22, 2018, to help increase public awareness of the need to eliminate single-use plastics, such as straws. In one day, this event will eliminate an estimated 15,000 straws from potentially entering the marine environment and posing a threat to sea turtles and other marine wildlife.

While plastic straws are called “disposable,” they last forever and are among the top 10 items collected globally during beach cleanup events. Already in 2018, LMC and partner organizations removed over 1,700 straws from Florida beaches. However, plastic pollution is much more than a litter problem. Sea turtles and other marine life are becoming ill and often dying from ingesting plastic, mistaking it for food.

So this Sunday, April 22nd, please join us by going  #StrawFreeWithLMC and celebrate Earth Day by skipping the straw, and saving a sea turtle! 

ThankYou
