Businesses Who Have Joined Final Straw Cornwall

“Never doubt that a small group of thoughtful, committed citizens can change the world. It’s the only thing that ever has.”

As well as sending a message to the world that we are starting to tackle the threat of single use plastic, the Final Straw Cornwall can also save your business money if you stop purchasing and giving plastic straws away. You will also get a wonderful thank you across the campaign’s social media platforms and here on our website for supporting the Final Straw Cornwall campaign.

Why Join? Drinking straws are a very clear example of completely unnecessary single use plastic that is discarded in huge quantities and ends up in landfill and our oceans where it kills marine life. Every straw on the planet right now will outlive everyone reading these words.

Some of our friends who are paper straw suppliers listed here on the website, kindly offer discounts to Final Straw Cornwall members.

Why give up using plastic straws? They are toxic, destroying our planet and do nothing for us, plus, there are now alternatives available! So why wouldn’t you?!
