Pledge to Skip the Straw!

It is estimated that nearly 9 million tons of plastic end up in the ocean each year.  If that trend continues, it’s anticipated there will be more plastic than fish in the ocean by 2050.  Reducing use of single-use plastics, including straws, can help.  Join Shoreline's Skip the Straw pledge.  For more information visit:
