Alternatives to plastic straws on the rise

Plastic straws

Cities from Seattle to St. Petersburg are banning single-use plastics like plastic straws, utensils and stirrers to limit the amount of plastic waste in the oceans.

It’s a fundamental shift that’s affecting nearly anyone who visits a restaurant or coffee shop. Behind the scenes, restaurants are looking for alternatives to plastic straws without impacting customer experience, their brand or the bottom line.

As a consumer, understand it’s a process. Your favorite coffee shop or restaurant may do a test run with paper or bamboo straws before deciding what works best. It’s all part of the movement to ‘go green.’
