Seattle bans plastic straws & utensils

Positive news!


Seattle is the 1st

major US city to ban plastic straws & utensils at restaurants, shops, food trucks & cafeterias.

Since July 2018, businesses faces a potential $250 fine (£190) for not abiding by the law. However today, public officials are focusing their energy on helping outlets into compliance, rather than enforcement.


Looking forward to the UK becoming the first nation banning single-use plastic straws!
