Want to know how you can help the planet? #SheddTheStraw to protect our waters and the animals that call them home!
A single plastic straw might not seem like much, but the 500 million straws Americans use every day add up to a big problem for our oceans, lakes and rivers. These single-use plastics never disappear—and they harm the animals that call our waters home.
You can help. Say no to single-use plastic straws and switch to reusable or compostable alternatives. Take the plastic pledge with Shedd—and share your commitment on social with #SheddTheStraw—to make a difference for the planet we all share.
