At a straw-optional facility, your customers request a straw instead of being given one with their drink by default. This one small change greatly reduces straw waste by a significant amount. Not only does it have a positive impact on our region's environmental health it can also reduce your operating costs.
For those customers that request a straw, you can still provide them one, and for those that don't, it's a strong statement of support for the long-term sustainability of our region's environment.
The Department of Sustainability has developed materials to help implement this policy and promote it to your customers at no cost to you. These include door/window decals, table tents with facts and information, and pins for servers.
