RETHINK PLASTIC – SKIP THE STRAW SUNCOAST CAMPAIGN
Americans use 500 million plastic drinking straws every day. The average use of a plastic straw is 20 minutes, but it will be around for approximately 600 years and many will end up in our oceans.
Eliza Ann’s Coastal Kitchen right here on Anna Maria Island is one of a growing number of area beach restaurants that have joined the new campaign “Skip the Straw Suncoast.” This campaign was created to reduce and eliminate the use of single-use plastics straws and food containers. As part of the campaign to save the environment Eliza Ann’s and other Island restaurants will not be giving straws to their customers.
