Portland Is The Latest City To Ditch Plastic Straws

By

Plastic drinking straws are being eliminated at various bars and restaurants in major cities. In North America alone, we’ve seen the movement take place in Toronto, cities in the state of Colorado, and along the West Coast of the United States. Portland, Oregon, is the latest community that’s seeing many of their bars and restaurants ditching straws. 

St. Jack, a French cafe located in the Northwest District, was one of the first places to eliminate plastic straws. According to Eater Portland, the idea was brought up by restaurant bar manager Charlie Dorst. The establishment simply serves drinks without the straw, and they explain their reasoning when customers ask for one.
