U.K. Manufacturers Plan Paper Straw Factory As Restaurants Drop Plastic


Single-use plastic is becoming the target of bans across the world, and the United Kingdom is preparing to join the wave. The Guardian reports that packaging industry titans are opening their own paper straw factory in Ebbw Vale, Wales.

They'll be providing hundreds of millions of paper straws every year to companies like McDonald’s, who will need someone to turn to quick when the ban becomes official. The new company is called Transcend Packaging and their sales and marketing director, Mark Varney, says it was an opportunity not to be overlooked.
