Don't Be A Sucker Campaign Launch!

Don't Be A Sucker Campaign Launch!

Single-use plastic sucks! At PCFML we realised we had to do something about it to stop it from getting into our waste stream, creeks, rivers, and finally the ocean. So we designed a new campaign! We knew we had to go big and in doing so, try to encourage as many other people as possible to also call it the last straw. This meant going straight to the source, to the places that give us our straws.
