McDonalds is banning plastic straws in its UK and Ireland stores starting this fall, saving an estimated 1.8 million per day, or 8.5 billion per year. WOW!
The burger chain will replace the plastic straws with paper ones- good news for the environment. The chain is looking at making similar changes in other parts of its world-wide market.
GOOD MOVE, McDonalds!
