House of Blues is completely eliminating plastic straws from all of its venues. A “straw-by-request” policy was implemented at 52 Live Nation-owned and -operated venues and 50 House of Blues Entertainment venues in July. Now, HOB is going farther.
In partnership with environmental group Lonely Whale, Live Nation is on track to eliminate the use of more than 6 million plastic straws this year and with a goal of achieving Zero Waste in 20 of the company’s venues by 2020.
Increasingly eco-activist music fans are demanding action and a “straw-by-request” policy is the kind of policy that every venue and bar could implement immediately.
