NEW YORK CITY MOVES FAST ON SIPPING STRAWS

Protect Our Waters



You Give a Sip, and they're listening!


NYC is moving fast on a bill to get rid of single-use plastic straws and stirrers in food service establishments throughout the city. This is great news for turtles, fish, birds, and other marine wildlife. Some very important decisions on this issue will take place at an upcoming New York City Council committee hearing. This Thursday, 6/21 at 11:45 AM, join us on the steps of NYC City Hall for a Rally to Ban Plastic Straws prior to the hearing — we need to up the momentum! Use the City Hall Park entrance on Broadway and Park Place. And don’t forget: tell your City Council member: protect our waters from plastic pollution and support a ban on single-use plastics straws!


New York City Council Member Rafael L. Espinal, Jr. has just proposed a bill to get rid of single-use plastic straws and beverage stirrers in food service establishments in the city.


We need to do our part to push this important bill forward on behalf of fish and turtles, whales and birds just off our shores. Tell your council member: Protect our waters from plastic pollution and support the Int. 936 today.


This is a huge development for marine life. Straws may seem insignificant. But because they typically can't be recycled, they pile up, creating tons of pollution. They're one of those most commonly found items at beach clean-ups. This bill will go a long way to keeping them out of our waterways and ultimately the sea.
