Outdoor Education student Taylor Polwart has been working with Christchurch bars to ditch the plastic straws and be more sustainable.

Joe's Garage, Fat Eddies and Lone Star are just a few of the names who are ditching the plastic straws in an effort to reduce their waste and become more environmentally friendly.
