On February 3rd, Surfrider Foundation Vancouver Island Chapter (SFVI) celebrated International Plastic Straw Free Day and officially launched our Straws Suck campaign! Will your business join the movement? Or have you already gone plastic-straw-free?

Note: Biodegradable does not break down efficiently, is not compostable or certified as safe for the natural environment once degraded.

On behalf of our Oceans, Waves and Beaches, we all thank you for this! Please consider also becoming a Surfrider Approved Business, as a part of the Vancouver Island Green Business Certification program.
