McDonald's To Replace Plastic Straws With Paper In An Effort To Reduce Waste

Published : 4/9/2018

McDonald's announced it will replace plastic straws with paper ones at some of its U.K. locations in May in an effort to help protect the environment.

In addition, customers will not automatically be given straws. Instead, straws will be held behind the counter, and will have to be specifically requested in an extra effort to reduce waste.

Plastic straws are making a huge negative impact on our planet and those who inhabit it. It's estimated that 8.5 billion plastic straws are used in the U.K. a year, according to the Marine Conservation Society. Many of the plastic straws we use end up polluting our oceans and harming sea life.
