In an environmentally conscious move, McDonald’s is the latest restaurant chain to phase out plastic straws from its restaurants. The development will enable all of its packaging to become recyclable.
On Friday, the BBC reported, starting from September 2018, McDonald’s will no longer service plastic straws in its restaurants in the United Kingdom and Ireland and will instead use paper ones.
“Reflecting the broader public debate, our customers told us they wanted to see a move on straws,” said McDonald’s to the BBC.
In April 2018, the British government proposed banning the usage of cotton buds and plastic straws in England.
