Starting tomorrow, customers will have to ask for plastic straws in all Los Angeles restaurants—from mom and pops to fast food chains.
According to ABC 7 this is the second phase of the “Straws on Request” initiative that began rolling out in April this year. This second phase will encompass smaller businesses. The initiative is the beginning of a larger campaign to remove plastic straws in LA entirely, to reduce single-use plastic waste in the environment.
If you own a restaurant or a business that supplies straws to customers, how are you handling the new requirements? As a customer, how do you feel about restrictions on plastic straws? What do you think of alternatives, like paper straws and plastic lids? Share your thoughts with Larry Mantle by calling 866-893-5722.
