Restaurants and businesses in Ventura are pledging to ditch single-use straws as part of the “Strawless Summer Challenge” launched by the Ventura County chapter of Surfrider Foundation, which seeks to raise awareness of the damage wrought by non-recyclable plastics and, in particular, straws. Come this weekend, one of Ventura County’s largest annual events will ditch straws as well when the Surf Rodeo kicks off in Ventura. As of July 10, Surfrider says that 19 restaurants in Ventura have committed to the pledge, becoming straw-by-request, paper-straw-by-request or offering no straws entirely, and two in Ojai.
