Miami Beach To Ban Plastic Straws

Written by on August 1, 2018

Plastic straws are a thing of the past in Miami Beach, as the city commission expanded their ban to cafe, parks, and other areas on the beach.

Straws have been a major problem when cleaning up the beaches. Although people aren’t throwing them into the water, straws make their way to the water during storm drains if they’re left near the water.

Many vendors are looking for alternatives in order to help stop this issue, including non-plastic straws. According to  an article written by the Miami Herald, places such as the Clevelander Hotel, Mango’s Tropical Cafe, and Ocean’s Ten are backing this movement, which will influence others to follow.

Plastic bags are also being banned at cafes. This ban is temporary at the moment, but could become permanent in the near future. Ocean pollution has been a critical issue, and it is great to see our community taking action to protect our marine life and environment.
