McDonald’s pilot programme to ban straws from September

McDonald’s is going to ban the use of plastic straws at six Brussels restaurants.

It is a part of a pilot programme following discussions with Brussels environment minister Céline Frémault.

Outlets at Bourse, Rue Neuve, Docks Bruxsel, Cora Anderlecht, Bascule and Chaussée d’Ixelles will no longer offer plastic straws from September, according to RTBF. McDonald’s Namur restaurant is also participating. Customers will still be able to request paper straws.

After banning single-use plastic bags last year, the Brussels government has been looking at a ban on plastic straws. Belgian restaurants and takeaways use 1.6 billion per year.

McDonald’s pledge is part of an overall initiative by the catering industry towards sustainable development including green energy and sorting waste.
