2018 Strawless Summer in Charleston! (A List of Participating Restaurants)

Charleston is participating in Strawless Summer, where local restaurants are ditching the plastic straw and opting for more sustainable choices. It is very difficult to recycle plastic straws due to their light weight. Therefore, they end up in the landfill forever, or even worse, in our water ways. To help cut down on this waste, and protect our wildlife, several Charleston restaurants have committed to stop serving plastic straws.

    Another example of a “cause” gone crazy. I recently needed 4 straws to finish a small drink. If restaurants are going to join this craziness, they need to provide a much better ( not cheaper for them) alternative. However, aren’t there much bigger things in this country to be concerned about?

    Why just the Summer? Make it permanent!

    Gotta love the paper straws that disintegrate in my children’s drinks and look like wet limp noodles after two minutes. Until there is a better remedy for pete’s sake let us have the damn plastic straws.
