McDonalds goes for plastic free straws

In a constant struggle for companies to become more and more environment friendly, McDonalds has made the move to go from a plastic straw to a paper one. The company uses 1.8 Million straws per day in the UK alone.

Online pressure from their customers has pushed McDonalds into changing their straws to paper ones. But now an online petition is asking to reverse its decision. People are concerned the straw “dissolves” in their drinks.

A lot of users are complaining online. Their straw dissolving even before they can drink any of their milkshake.

Others are thankful that the straws won’t be around in 400 years time.
