The Last Straw
300 million tons of plastic waste are produced per year around the world. Of that unfathomable amount, half is designed to be used only once and simply thrown away. Also known as single-use plastics, products such as plastic cups, utensils, and straws are difficult to recycle and take hundreds of years to fully decompose, instead entering the water we drink, the food we eat, and the air we breathe. Reducing their use is the best strategy for combating their impact.
To that end, Dragon Hill Lodge is proud to take part in The Last Straw, an Armed Forces Recreation Center (AFRC) initiative. Dragon Hill Lodge food and beverage locations will now only provide straws upon request in an effort to reduce the single-use plastic waste produced by our resort hotel.
We are excited to bring forth an initiative that will not only reduce waste, but will come at no extra cost to our guests. Please join us as we take this step toward increased environmental responsibility.
