The average person uses 1.6 straws per day. It’s no wonder they’re among the top ten items collected every year during Ocean Conservancy’s International Coastal Cleanup. In fact, volunteers have picked up more than 9 million straws and stirrers from beaches and waterways over the 30+ year history of the International Coastal Cleanup!
Unfortunately, many more continue to make their way into our ocean, where they pose a real danger to sea turtles, albatross, fish and other ocean wildlife.
In an effort to help reduce the amount of plastic waste in our oceans and waterways, we here at Hawkers will no longer be offering plastic straws to our guests. While plastic straws will still be available to guests upon request, we urge you to take a stand with us and help combat this growing epidemic.
As a way to show our support and kick-off this movement, Hawkers will be giving away stainless steel straws to each of our guests who come in to the restaurants between October 11th and 14th. This straw is our gift to you to show our thanks for your support to this cause!
