McDonald’s is being requested to stop its paper straws in the UK, and Ireland claims that it “soften” in drinks.
The fast-food giant is shifting from plastic to paper straws at their 1,361 restaurants after consumer pressure.
An online petition requesting for a replacement of paper straw to plastic straws has so far collected more than 35,000 signs.
The McDonald chain provides 1.8 million straws to its four million UK customers each day.
Leave a question …
Is plastic-free navigating the future?
How to be using eco-friendly in everyday life?
