Throughout last month, the Lonely Whale Foundation ran a campaign called “Strawless in Seattle.” Over 100 restaurants and organizations removed plastic straws from being an option to use in efforts to eliminate plastic waste. The movement will now be pushing toward other major cities around the world for a new campaign in 2018.

19 total cities have been nominated for the “Strawless Ocean” tour next year. New York City, Atlanta, Chicago, and Dallas are some of the major cities in the United States. San Francisco and Los Angeles are also options in California, where there have already been places that have limited the use of plastic straws. They’ll also be looking toward Hong Kong, Amsterdam, London, and Berlin.
