As a Cornish Hospitality Business with 31 years under our belt we realised what a serious amount of straws has slipped through our fingers over the years. We knew it was our responsibility to educate our staff and customers about the huge detrimental effects of plastic on the world, especially the oceans. A 20 minute non necessary product that take 200 years to decompose. We no longer give customers straws, unless they are asked for and then they are paper.
This small act opens up huge discussion a lot of the time about single use plastic. It is our responsibility being at the forefront of consumer influencing and product specification to spread the word and make people stop, think and make wise environmental choices.
