Sedona Chamber Celebrates Earth Day with Free Reusable Straws

In 2018, The Sedona Chamber of Commerce & Tourism Bureau joined forces with the City of Sedona, Sedona Compost, Keep Sedona Beautiful and the Sustainability Alliance to launch Straw Free Sedona, a campaign that encourages local businesses and their patrons to cease use of plastic straws.

Since then, dozens of businesses have pledged to avoid one-time use plastic straws from their inventory; a small step towards a more sustainable Sedona. Initial reports have shown that since the launch of the campaign, over a half million plastic one-time use straws have been eliminated in Sedona!

To celebrate Earth Day on April 22, The Sedona Chamber of Commerce & Tourism Bureau (SCC&TB) has donated 10 reusable stainless-steel straws to participating restaurants for their first 10 patrons!

Be one of the first ten customers at the following businesses to receive a free usable straw:

Thank you to the following businesses who have eagerly jumped on this sustainable initiative. Although the elimination of plastic straws is a small step towards less waste on land and in the water, there are many more initiatives that can be put into action; such as decreasing use of plastic bags and Styrofoam containers. Perhaps your home or business can work towards zero-waste or use your food waste to compost your new vegetable garden.

Which initiative will you lead? How will you change the world on Earth Day?
