Surfrider is organizing an event to show how you can have a good time and still forgo the plastic straw! Get ready for the first No Straw Bar Crawl organized by SurfriderLA.
Plastic straws have been ranked in the top 10 list of items found on the beach during beach clean-ups since 1989! Eliminating the unnecessary use of single-use plastic straws is a major policy initiative for us this year.
The West LA and Malibu Chapter of Surfrider are advocating to the city of Santa Monica to consider banning plastic straws or AT LEAST implementing a Straw Upon Request Only ordinance.
Join SurfriderLA Saturday, August 26 for a #nostrawbarcrawl! This bar crawl is an important step to expand outreach to Santa Monica establishments so we can work together to eliminate one of the most commonly found items on LA beaches.
The crawl is free! Register here and grab a limited edition #nostrawbarcrawl t-shirt and Surfrider Foundation membership while you’re at it!

This event is sure to build awareness and spotlight how each of us has the power to make changes in our daily habits and how businesses and establishments can step up these efforts by putting policies in place that consider our environment.
Participants are invited to post photos and conversations about their experiences at this event on the new Facebook Group page - The Best Straw - where discussions are ongoing about our plastic straws problems and solutions are offered and discussed.
