Same taste, less waste

Straw-Lite Eateries is our latest campaign, focusing on plastic straws. Plastic straws are ubiquitous across cafes and restaurants in Singapore, yet they are used for only minutes before being thrown away. Many straws find their way into the environment, polluting our beaches and injuring turtles and seabirds.

We are currently reaching out to cafes and restaurants across Singapore to encourage them to adopt a “straw-lite” policy, so that they only give out straws when requested. We also encourage eateries to phase out plastic disposables from their operations wherever they can.

We are proud to be working with the following partners:
