The final straw: Rising plastic alternatives
from Packaging Gateway
In the U.K., plastic straws were set to be banned in April 2020 alongside other plastics, such as drink stirrers and cotton buds. The law was confirmed in May 2019, following an open public consultation that saw 80% of respondents back the ban for distribution and sale of plastic straws. Since then, plastic alternative straw businesses have seen a significant rise in market share.
