The Last Straw Initiative at Sugar Ridge ResortJun 29, 2018
Sustainability is important to Seasmoke. We are pleased to recognize one of our Caribbean clients, Sugar Ridge Resort in Antigua, for their environmental initiative to get rid of plastic straws!
Green Globe certified Sugar Ridge Resort has had it with plastic pollution. In an effort to reduce the use of single-use plastic, the resort has implemented the Last Straw Initiative and no longer serves their beverages with plastic straws.
Plastic is a serious threat to delicate underwater ecosystems and straws are the 11th most found ocean trash, making up around 3% of the garbage recovered in ocean clean ups. Each year 1 million sea birds and 100,000 marine animals die from ingesting plastic.
We are proud of our client for making the effort to protect our planet.
