Restaurants and Collaborators

Shedd Aquarium is encouraging restaurants, businesses and local government entities in our Chicago community to remove single-use plastic straws from their daily operations or serve them only upon request, in turn raising awareness of the plastic pollution that threatens our water quality and environmental health. Joining is as simple as following these three steps:

1. Serve straws only upon request for all beverages. We highly recommend having straws accessible for people with disabilities who require them to drink.

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

3. Educate your staff and customers about why you are making this change. Shedd can provide resources and talking points for you to share with your staff and customers about the issues with plastic pollution and why your business is making this commitment.

Learn more about participating in SheddTheStraw here.

Join the movement!

For Shedd the Straw inquiries and to sign on your restaurant or business as a Shedd The Straw collaborator, contact us at sheddthestraw@sheddaquarium.org

Check out the restaurants and businesses throughout Chicago that have already committed to eliminating single-use plastic straws.
