Banning plastic straws is not enough. A plastic straw ban is a drop in a literal ocean of plastic. But, it starts a conversation our world needs to have.
It helps us to think about single use plastic – or single use anything – as a change we can make in our lives, and in our work. A change we can advocate for in the world at large.
Thank you to our friend Xiuhtezcatl Martinez for encouraging us to ban plastic straws for Bassnectar’s 2017 New Years Eve event in Atlanta, and helping us to understand the importance of banning plastic straws moving forward at every Bassnectar-produced event. It’s now on Bassnectar’s rider, and we look forward to being a part of good change in the world in this way.

This is not about politics. This is not about money. This is not about political party. This is about our future.
