Starbucks Announces Plan To Ban Straws From All Stores

By Aimee Lutkin

On Monday, Starbucks joined the growing number of companies who have committed to banning plastic straws from their franchises, announcing an end goal to cut out the single-use plastic product by 2020.

The company claims this change will eliminate 1 billion straws from circulation every single year, CNN reports.

This is a big step in the campaign to end the use of straws, which contribute considerably to ocean pollution and marine life.
