Skip the straw + download kit

09/05/2018 at 13:35

If you haven’t watched the video, do that first.

So we wanted to help out reducing the plastic straw. Today. Not waiting for politicians or governments to take action but just by the power of people. So we made a little sticker that can help to change our habits. A friendly one that bar owners can appreciate (because they can buy less straws)

Made by the Lieke. aka Liekeland. Everything she draws looks just..beautiful. I’d highly recommend to check out her website, best enjoyed with a cup of tea.

OK back to it. You can find 3 different stickers in this download kit.
1: Menu Stickers. Small to stick on the drink section on a menu
2: Counter Stickers. Slightly bigger and contain some extra information, perfect to stick on the bar or counter
3: Street sticker. Spread the word on the streets. Simple but effective! (we occasionally sell a few in our bazar)

Dont forget to add #skipthestraw if you post about it!

Hi quanbui, just talk to them. 🙂 In my experience most coffee shop/bar/restaurant owners don’t want to use straws either (just think about the costs for a second!).

Hello community,

For those who could not follow the news in Brazil, more specifically in Rio de Janeiro, I have the pleasure to announce that Rio has become the first Brazilian city to banish plastic straws in coffee shops, kiosks, bars and restaurants. Establishments that fail to comply are subject to a fine.

I understand that banning it is not the best solution, but I consider it as an important step in raising awareness about the theme.

Being such a recent topic with the video Skip the straws, and seeing that there was no translation into Portuguese (BR), we [from Precious Plastic Rio] created the caption (pending approval by @jegor-m and @davehakkens).

Subtitled video here: https://www.youtube.com/timedtext_editor?action_mde_edit_form=1&v=7IqxJUx_l24&lang=pt-BR&bl=csps&ui=sub&ref=hub&tab=captions

We also translated the stickers that have already been printed and are ready to be spread around (although, we placed just 42 stickers on an A4 sheet without losing the resolution). Tks Lieke and Dave for creating it.

Link to download the stickers: bit.ly/2Kgik34

Kisses, Vinicius (@preciousplasticrio)

Is there a font we can use to translate the text ? Some villagers around the world might not understand english.

Please add in a 8.5 X 11 inch pdf template to the kit.

Thanks

I really like this idea of a campaign.  Many restaurants in my area (PEI, Canada) have started skipping the straws unless you ask for one, but fast food places are still pounding out a straw or two with every order.  The reason I like this better than an outright ban on plastic straws is that there is sometimes a need for plastic straws – some persons with disabilities rely on them.

You can also print the stickers on printer paper, cut them out and keep a glue stick in your purse to stick them on!

It would be more than perfect to create a identical kit based on sea animals 😉

Could you share some experiences or any tips to make the owners accept these stickers happily? I really love the idea and want to spread the stickers in my community.
Thank you!

Well, do they really need to be made of plastic in that case?
