Unfortunately, many single-use plastics cannot be recycled. Reducing the amount of single-use plastics consumed and reusing items are the most effective approaches in keeping plastic out of the environment. For more information about what can/can’t be recycled, check out your local waste disposal system website.
Stomp the Straw Approved Business:
We support reusables over wasteful disposable items such as single-use shopping bags, bottled water, coffee cups and to-go containers. To get started, start small, pick one item that you want to change. Track your progress and make a goal. Remember it’s not about perfection, it’s an opportunity to learn and strive to reduce plastic waste every day.
Blank Park Zoo is straw free. For the safety of our animals and the natural world around us we do not offer straws or lids at our Safari Grill or Macaw Café. We also provide water filling stations for you to refill your water bottle. We also support organizations that work to protect wildlife.
