Mcdonalds bans plastic straws in Australia

Its happened in various parts in the states and now it is coming to Australia. They have said they will ban plastic straws in Australia by 2020. They have started it at various locations around Australia and are slowly rolling it out. We are happy they are making the change but it seems a while away - by our calculations that’s an additional 500million straws that Australians will use and then throw away at McDonald’s between now and then. 

Reusable straws are going to very quickly become a think of the future.
