Disney Is The Latest Major Company To Eliminate Plastic Straws

By Carly Sitzer

The Walt Disney Company is the most recent giant to join the effort to protect the environment by banning plastic straws. In a blog post released this morning, the company revealed that plastic straws and stirrers will be banned from all of their resorts, theme parks, and attractions beginning mid-next year.

The only exception will be Disney Tokyo, which is owned and operated by the Oriental Land Company, with a license from Disney. 

With news of the announcement, Disney will join other major companies including Starbucks, McDonald’s, and Marriott Hotels in forbidding plastic straws in hopes of improving the impact that single-use plastic has on the environment and oceans, a cause that the company takes seriously.
