Restaurants and Collaborators

Shedd Aquarium is challenging Chicago-area restaurants and businesses to remove single-use plastic straws from their daily operations. This change will raise public awareness of plastic pollution, which endangers wildlife and aquatic environments important to all of us. It will also help reduce the 500 million single-use plastic straws used—and thrown away—by Americans every day. Joining is simple:

1. Stop including straws with water or other drinks; only have them available upon request.

2. Swap your plastic straws for a reusable or compostable alternative.

3. Tell your staff and customers why you are making this change.

Learn more about participating in SheddTheStraw here.

Join the movement!
