Did you know that over 500,000,000 plastic straws are used and thrown away every day?
That’s a lot of waste clogging our oceans and piling up in landfill and plastic takes an average of 450 years to start to degrade.
Due to our location in the stunning Whitsundays, which acts as the gateway to the Great Barrier Reef we felt very strongly we needed to take action in this space and have made the steps to become PLASTIC STRAW FREE.
In order to support The Last Straw campaign, we have taken several measures:
- We have signed up to The Last Straw campaign showing our support for this incredible initiative
- Our staff have pledged to stop serving straws in drinks to try and reduce the amount of plastic waste we produce
- We have replace plastic straws with paper straws in our venue – for those customers who actually specifically request a straw
- We have educated our team on The Last Straw campaign to gain engagement in this great initiative and so they can educate our customers about our decision to no longer serve drinks with straws
We hope you will join us in supporting this great initiative, particularly when visiting the Whitsundays.
