Our Mission

What is 
Final Straws 
Mission?

Our Main Objectives Are:

1 – To create a comprehensive community of restaurants, cafes, pubs, hospitality venues and businesses that have agreed to and have gone straw free.

2 – To engage the people in Cornwall to order their drinks without a straw, wherever they go, and if given a straw to hand it back and explain “I’m plastic straw free and your business  should be too – please sign up at finalstrawcornwall.co.uk”

 

3 –  To celebrate the success of Cornwall going straw free; to influence our neighbours in Devon and beyond, and, to change our thinking about single use plastic products.

“KNOWLEDGE IS THE KEY TO MANY SOLUTIONS – ONCE PEOPLE REALISE THE PROBLEM AND THE BULB IN THEIR BRAIN LIGHTS UP, THEY CAN BE INSPIRED TO TAKE ACTION, FEEL GOOD ABOUT THEMSELVES AND TELL OTHERS.” PAT SMITH

Why 
Cornwall?
Why 
now?

Cornwall is our home, a remarkable county which is world renowned for its rugged coastal beauty. With over 300 miles of coastline and a worldwide reputation for hospitality, food and ocean-side adventure, Cornwall is a community perfectly positioned to say no to drinking straws and influence others to do the same.

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

Plastic straws are the easy first rung on the ladder and Cornwall an ideal place to achieve their demise.
