Action of the Month: Support Central Contra Costa’s Last Plastic Straw Campaign

The Central Contra Costa Last Plastic Straw campaign is continuing to gain momentum! This month, consider taking action to help stop the use of single-use plastic straws in Contra Costa by participating in the campaign.

Actions you can take:


  1. Refuse plastic straws at restaurants – remember to say “No straw, please” when ordering a drink.
  2. Start a conversation – talk to your favorite restaurants and café’s about why you’re saying “no” to plastic straws. See if they’ll consider instituting a straws only upon request policy, and make switch to a compostable or reusable option like paper, bamboo, or stainless steel.
  3. Go reusable – pack a straw with you on the go.
  4. Sign Central Contra Costa Last Plastic Straw campaign’s petition – show your support for a ban on plastic straws in Contra Costa.



If you haven’t quite kicked plastic straws from your life, Plastic Free July is a great time to start! Check out the Last Plastic Straw for more info and tips.
