Our Last Straw is a coalition of restaurants, bars, cafes, hotels, and event venues that began in the DC metropolitan region with a mission: Eliminate single-use plastic straws.

Our Last Straw (OLS) was created and developed by Dan Simons and Farmers Restaurant Group, parent of Founding Farmers, Farmers Fishers Bakers & Farmers & Distillers.

ABOUT US 

TAKE ACTION: BUSINESSES

Every day, we are learning more and more about the devastating impact plastic straws and other single-use plastics have on our environment and on our health. Yet, every day, Americans use millions of single-use plastic straws, many of which are handed out by the hospitality industry. It is up to us -- restaurants, bars, cafes, hotels, and event venues -- to lead the charge for change, to stop serving plastic straws, and to work together to protect our planet and everyone on it.

 

       We agree to replace single-use plastic straws in our business(es) with biodegradable paper straws, hay straws, and/or no straws within 60 days of signing this agreement.

       We will lead the charge for change to eliminate the use of single-use plastic straws across the DC metropolitan region, working with Farmers Restaurant Group and other members of the Our Last Straw coalition to educate diners, the public, and policy makers about the environmental and health hazards of single-use plastic straws through our store(s) and digital channels.

       We grant Our Last Straw permission to publicly use our name, logo, and likeness as a supporter of the campaign’s efforts.
