Plastic Free Partners
We believe a single individual can make a world of difference and our goal at the aquarium is to create an environment that could educate and inspire these kinds of individuals.
Since opening the Shreveport Aquarium, we have eliminated single serve plastic bottles, plastic straws, plastic bags and excessive packaging materials from the facility so that we are not contributing to the issue. Join us by taking these same steps at home and be a part of the solution.
Join the movement and eliminate single use plastics from your life. Tag us on Instagram at #PlasticFreeShreveport
Take the pledge and help keep our oceans clean and get $500 of eco-friendly to-go supplies from us!
Say NO to single-use plastic food packaging! Single-use plastics are an environmental disaster. Disposable straws, to-go containers, water bottles and plastic bags that once seemed like a nice convenience have become something else: a massive, eternal pile of garbage in our ocean waters and landfills.
As a small business, you can stop being part of the problem and be part of the solution. With a few changes to your business practices, you can eliminate these single-use plastics in your inventory, and help create a cleaner, safer world. The answer is clear: just say no to single-use plastics!
We are here to help you kick this habit. We are looking for 10 like-minded businesses to take the pledge today to stop using plastic or Styrofoam to-go food containers, cups, straws, utensils and bags.
By taking this pledge and committing to at least 12 months of single-use plastic-free business, Shreveport Aquarium will donate $500 worth of biodegradable food containers to start you off on the right foot.
Help us fight plastic pollution in our community and join our group of business leaders who want to change.
We will also feature your business on our website and post about how your business is helping our community on our social media feed. With almost 30K followers, you will be sure to be noticed.
What you can do:
Switch from plastic cups to compostable or biodegradable
Say no to straws, simply don’t use them or switch to paper straws
Use paper or cardboard to-go containers over Styrofoam
Replace to go water bottles with water in a box or aluminum cans
