    Last night-we went out to eat and I ordered a martini (I drink these so I don't have to say"no straw please") but it came with 2 cocktail stirrers! :( so I can't click on my No Straw today...

      Oh bummer ! The good news is next time you’ll know when you order stay no straw and no single use plastic stirer either

      I had lunch at a Cracker Barrel and asked for the unsweetened iced-tea, no straw. I said to the waitress that I was doing the Plastic Free July Challenge and she smiled and said she was aware of that.  :-)

      You're right Carey, that is my most common request and in my habit- but martini's usually aren't served with straws so I didn't say it :(

      When you order, for example, " I would like a cold glass of water with NO STRAW PLEASE", that usually works.

    very hard to find in a Department Store. I was more disappointed in the American Fourth of July clothes available with Made in China easily seen on the tags...
