Recently, many major companies, and several American cities, making a vow to ditch plastic straws, and now Red Lobster is following suit, with the seafood restaurant chain saying starting next month, it will no longer automatically give them out to customers. If diners want them, they will have to ask.
By the end of 2020, Red Lobster will start replacing plastic straws with an eco-friendly alternative.
Red Lobster estimates that the change will eliminate 150 million plastic straws per year from its more than 700 restaurants. And says the new policy is a meaningful step in the company's commitment to preserving the world's oceans and marine life.
