Sodexo is joining brands like Red Lobster and Disney in the crusade against single-use plastics. In a Green Matters exclusive, the food services company shared its multi-tiered plan to purge plastic bags and stirrers by 2019 — and polystyrene foam containers by 2025.

The first wave of items up for review are disposable plastic bags, stirrers, and straws. By the end of 2019, Sodexo plans to eliminate the bags and stirrers entirely, and implement a request-only policy on plastic straws for customers who need them.
