Stop the use of non degradable plastic straws: Arc Cinema Drogheda

Stop the use of non degradable plastic straws: Arc Cinema Drogheda

Get restaurants, cinemas, cafes and pubs throughout Ireland to switch to biodegradable straws so that we can all help reduce plastic waste and protect birds and marine life and keep our town clean.

Why is this important?

If Westport can do it then Drogheda can too!

A move like this is exactly what we need to turn the tide on plastic pollution. We all know how devastating plastic waste can be on marine life, and by 2050 it is predicted that there will be more plastic in our oceans than fish.

This is why Uplift members are banding together to create local petitions and call on their local cafes, restaurants and pubs asking them to commit to stop using plastic straws.

If enough of us pressure the local members in our area - we could create a ripple effect that will make all restaurants and café’s ditch single use plastic straws. If a town like Westport can commit to making all its pubs plastic free, why can’t others? [3]

“We are a coastal town and want to preserve the wildlife and nature in Westport, so getting rid of plastic straws helps us to do that,” Chambers said. "It is very likely that all the other businesses in the town will come on board.”
