Straw Free Gunnison Valley

Started in Spring 2019, Sustainable CB’s Straw Free Gunnison Valley Campaign is an ongoing initiative addressing the consequences of single-use waste items, specifically plastic straws, in our community. The plastic straw is a single-use waste item that is used for the shortest amount of time and thrown away the quickest. Straw Free Gunnison Valley Campaign is both a way to recognize businesses that are committed to moving towards more sustainable practices, and a way to encourage other businesses to think about how their utilization of single-use waste items affects our community.

Thank you to Kristin Fitzgerald for designing the logo for this campaign!

Straw Free Gunnison Valley Compliant Businesses

To be deemed a compliant business, businesses must subscribe to “straws available upon request”, and utilize plastic straw alternatives such as paper or metal straws, or have no straws at their establishment what so ever. Businesses that are moving towards being totally #strawfree (listed below) are typically getting rid of the current stock they have, and plan on not utilizing plastic straws after that point!

To learn more about becoming part of the Straw Free Gunnison Valley Campaign as a compliant business, please email us at!
