STRAWLESS PACIFIC
Did you know? Over 500,000,000 plastic straws are used each day. In only the past twenty years, people have come to expect plastic straws in every drink, in an example of extreme waste being generated for minimal convenience. These short-lived tools are usually dropped into a garbage can with no further thought, instantly becoming a source of plastic pollution.

Strawless Pacific, an initiative of the Pacific Islands Development Forum’s (PIDF) MyOceanMatters campaign, seeks to add momentum to Pacific efforts, so plastic straws become a relic of the past. In the short term, we work with our members, partners and most importantly you to encourage eateries and supermarkets to no longer automatically give plastic straws; we educate individuals to refuse plastic straws and spread the “straw free” message; and we work to change local regulation to stop this unnecessary plastic pollution.

In the long run, this collective engagement around the gateway issue of plastic straws will meaningfully shift the way individuals and businesses think about plastic pollution - and about our society’s disposable culture on a larger scale.
