Ditch the straw this summer!

We use over 500 million plastic straws every day in the US. Too many of them end up in our oceans, waves, and beach polluting the water and harming marine life. If we don’t solve our plastic pollution, by 2050 there will be more plastic than fish in our ocean. Join the Ocean City Chapter in our Strawless Summer program!

Here’s a good read about the problem with plastic straws.

If you agree with us about straws, note that “straws upon request” is one of the optional criteria in our “Ocean Friendly Restaurants” Program. Read more about that and help us find restaurants that are ready to become ocean friendly.
