This Is Ireland's First Plastic-Free Cafe

By Marissa Higgins

In an effort to go plastic-free, or at least reduce our plastic consumption, many corporations are making changes. For example, Starbucks is dropping plastic straws from their stores, and instead using an "adult sippy cup" lid. Some airlines, including American Airlines, are going to stop offering plastic straws on flights. Disney will no longer use plastic straws at their resorts, theme parks, and attractions beginning next year.

But it's not just major corporations making these changes. Even small, local businesses are making an effort to reduce our waste and eco-impact. Ireland's first plastic-free cafe has just opened in the University College Cork.
