‘There’s no excuse for single use’

The Last Straw on the Great Barrier Reef is the Official Campaign © targeting plastic straws on and around the GBR. We are working with Citizen’s of the GBR, and The Last Straw Australia to make the GBR region plastic straw free.

Life expectancy:

Plastic straw = 100+ years
Average human = < 100 years

GOAL: To have all businesses operating on and around the Great Barrier Reef single-use plastic straw free by the end of 2019. This includes everything from vessels, resorts/hotels, councils, bars, pubs, sporting and food venues.

Update: 312 venues have gone plastic straw free as of the 18 August 2018.
