Divi Resorts Goes Strawless

In an effort to reduce its carbon footprint, all Divi Resorts have gone strawless.

All Divi Resorts including Divi Aruba Phoenix Beach Resort, Divi Village Golf & Beach Resort and Divi Dutch Village Beach Resort on Aruba, have gone strawless as part of the company's “Divi Green” initiative. According to National Geographic, Americans use 500 million straws daily, and 8 million tons of plastic trash flows into the world’s oceans every year. While plastic drinking straws are not the top contributor, these tiny tubes are unnecessary and have become a huge problem for Caribbean islands and the creatures that call them home. Their size makes them one of the most insidious polluters because they entangle marine animals and are consumed by fish. Divi Resorts hopes its efforts will help curb this pollution.
