The average straw is used for just 20 minutes but can take up to 500 years to break down. A tiny fraction of plastic straws are ever recycled with the majority ending up in landfill or rivers, from where they eventually end up in the sea. In America alone 500 million straws are used daily. That’s enough straws to wrap around the circumfrence of the earth two and a half times! It’s heartbreaking to see the affects of single use plastics in our seas and at Rock Food Concepts we are pledging to commit to switching to more sustainable alternatives. With immediate effect we will be removing straws entirely from the large proportion of our drinks at all of our venues. The straws that we now stock are wheat based and fully biodegradable. #strawlessman 
The UK Government has announced plans to eliminate all plastic waste in Britain over the next 25 years. Giving up single use plastic straws seems like an easy place to start. We live in a UNESCO biosphere region and surely must accept some responsibility for looking after  our planet. #strawlessman 
We would like to take this opportunity to encourage all local businesses to switch from single use plastic straws to greener alternatives. Some restaurants have already made these steps but surely more must follow. Ban plastic straws in restaurants, ban plastic straws in bars, ban plastic straws in supermarkets. Customers must feel empowered to refuse plastic straws too. #strawlessman 
If you’re not part of the solution, you’re part of the problem! Together we can make the island plastic straw free! Ban straws on Man! Let’s do this!

  • @maryfcousins : Great, I love this. Compostable straws and everything else is the way forward. 👍😁

  • @bunnyclanisleofman : In Mexico 5 star hotel we went to no longer uses straws at all due to the damage it causes the sea life, which is their biggest attraction. Finally it seems to be getting through to people 🙌
