* Lonely Whale uses the best available science to inform its campaigns.

** Lonely Whale’s movement For A #StrawlessOcean recognizes and strongly advocates for the needs of our allies in the disability community who require a straw to drink. We are committed to working with our allies in the disability community, politics, and business to ensure that legislation is inclusive, to identify plastic straw alternatives that work for everyone, and to make these alternatives readily available at any establishment, city, or country that has banned the single-use plastic straw.
