No Straw November

Plastic straws are one of the main ocean plastic polluters, help us change that! "No Straw November" was created to bring awareness to the many plastic straws being used once and then thrown away in a single month. Jr Ocean Guardians challenges you to refuse plastic straws the whole month of November and to keep a tally of how many straws you eliminated from potentially ending up in the ocean. The ultimate goal of No Straw November is to use the single-use plastic straw as a wake up call to all the other plastic you unknowingly use in your life.

Please share this challenge with others and use the hashtag #NoStrawNovember.

If you would like a reusable straw email City of Irvine Environmental Programs at environmentalprograms@cityofirvine.org with your contact information.
