Backing the global ‘straw war’, Tintswalo Atlantic has banned all plastic straws on site at the hotel on Chapman’s Peak in Cape Town, and replaced it with the use of re-usable glass straws.
Lisa Goosen, the owner of Tintswalo Atlantic says:
‘According to National Geographic, although straws amount to a tiny fraction of ocean plastic, their size makes them one of the most insidious polluters because they entangle marine animals and are consumed by fish. Our location right on the Atlantic Ocean, where we witness amazing sea life every day, constantly reminds us about the vulnerability of nature and we feel very strongly about supporting the environmental campaign to stop using plastic straws to help save the oceans. Apart from the use of glass straws in the hotel, it is also a popular gift item offered for sale in the hotel gift shop’.
