This is pretty cool! But I feel like we need to do more than just straws! What about all the styrofoam and plastic bottles! Aren't they worse? It's almost 2019 and we definitely know how to make products that will help the environment instead of hurt it, so I'm all for new materials!
The Walt Disney Company is set to eliminate single-use plastic straws and plastic stirrers at all its owned and operated locations across the globe by mid-2019.
"Eliminating plastic straws and other plastic items are meaningful steps in our long-standing commitment to environmental stewardship," said Bob Chapek, Chairman, Disney Parks, Experiences, and Consumer Products. "These new global efforts help reduce our environmental footprint, and advance our long-term sustainability goals."
