Greene Turtle Restaurants Going Straw Free for Marine Life

May 22, 2018

The Greene Turtle Sports Bar and Grille announced that, starting tomorrow on World Turtle Day, May 23, its restaurants including the Germantown location will be going straw free, in an effort to protect marine life.

   Over 500 million plastic straws are used each day in the United States. By going straw free, The Greene Turtle Sports Bar & Grille is saving over 7 million plastic straws from entering the ecosystem. Biodegradable straws, provided by Aardvark straws, will be available for certain beverages and upon request.

  In support of the restaurant’s effort, Diageo, a global leader in beverage alcohol with a vast collection of brands across spirits and beer, will donate $1 of every bottle of Naked Turtle Rum sold at The Greene Turtle Sports Bar & Grille to the Sea Turtle Conservancy to help promote awareness about the different species of sea turtles and the various threats to their survival.

   “The Greene Turtle Sports Bar & Grille values protecting marine life,” said Layla Nielsen, Senior Director of Marketing at The Greene Turtle Sports Bar & Grille. “We are excited to do our part by skipping the straw and helping reduce the number of plastic straws in the ecosystem.”
