Dine LBC is committed to reducing the plastic straw pollution in Long Beach and has made it our community focus for 2018. We are encouraging restaurants to offer straws by request only rather than auto-strawing soft beverages and water, and to switch to biodegradable straws if possible. We are also doing our part to educate the dining public in requesting that they order beverages with no straw in restaurants, or to purchase inexpensive reusable metal or plastic straws to carry with them when dining out.

Check out our recent appearance with Kerstin Kansteiner, proprietress of Berlin Bistro on Good Day LA on Fox 11 promoting the #NoStrawChallenge in Long Beach!
