It may seem like a small thing, but single use plastic straws have a big environmental footprint. In fact, more than 175 billion straws are filtered into landfills and litter the oceans each year – and plastic straws rank no. 5 on the list of the top 10 items collected in the ocean, according to The Last Plastic Straw.
Plastic disposable straws are a tremendous source of pollution, with the equivalent of 125 school buses being filled daily with trashed straws in the USA. Bacardi wants people to refuse straws outright and has made several of its venues straw-free.
Bacardi recently initiated the 'No-Straw' movement as a means of combating plastic straw waste. Plastic straws are directly linked to the spirits market, meaning Bacardi's drinks are often served with plastics straws that will eventually end up in landfills. This initiative aims to reduce waste by asking consumers to say no to plastic straws at the bar and at home.
