Ditch the Straw
We were already working on how to quit straws, so we jumped right in when the citywide initiative came together in late 2017.
Introduced as a month-long pilot program, HOTLIPS committed immediately to removing plastic straws forever. Now we offer paper straws on the counter and hold some sturdier ones in reserve for anyone who asks.
We're proud to stand by Portland businesses committed to stopping straws from entering waterways. More information on this effort can be found here: https://portland.surfrider.org/programs/ditchthestraw/
