The Last Plastic Straw is a movement to eliminate single-use plastic at the source and a project of Plastic Pollution Coalition.

The Last Plastic Straw was created as a way to connect the individual in a positive, impactful, and tangible way towards a solution to the plastic pollution problem. By empowering and educating the public and private sectors on plastic pollution, and suggesting a simple act that can have a far-reaching instantaneous effect on our planet.

In only the past twenty years, people have come to expect plastic straws in every drink, in an example of extreme waste being generated for minimal convenience. These short-lived tools are usually dropped into a garbage can with no further thought, instantly becoming a source of plastic pollution.

The Last Plastic Straw initiative seeks to activate citizens through a grassroots campaign to encourage individuals to push for change in restaurant protocol and practices in their local communities around the world.
