No Straw Every Day

To arouse attention to the benefits of leading a plastic-free lifestyle, PolyU has been running a campaign since April 2018 to ban straws on Fridays and to invite the campus community to pledge ‘Plastic Free Friday’. From 15 October 2018 onwards, the University will take further efforts in driving the plastic-free culture by introducing the No Straw Every Day. Campus catering outlets will only offer straws when requested in all business hours. By having no straws, we will together make a big and decisive step in our plastic-free journey.

No Straw Every Day earns support from all catering outlets on main campus and Student Halls of Residence:
