Plastic straws are one of the many single-use plastics that litter beaches, pollute oceans and harm wildlife. Martin County has adopted a single-use plastic reduction strategy and you can help by shopping local vendors that support sustainability practices and incorporating reduction strategies into your everyday routine.
The Florida Department of Environmental Protection encourages Florida residents and visitors to reduce their plastic use and “Skip the Straw.”
For one week, residents, schools and businesses can Take the Pledge to Skip the Straw ❯
Clean local waterways are critical to our community and surrounding areas. Maintaining and improving water quality is essential to protect public health, quality of life, fisheries, wildlife, and watersheds and to ensure opportunities for public recreation and economic development.
The Martin County Board of County Commissioners continues to invest significantly in this crucial effort and is a leader in the development of water quality improvement projects in our region. No other county in the state of Florida has invested as much as Martin County for Everglades restoration.
