Leading Nordic hotel company Scandic Hotels announced it’s moving away from plastic, including drink straws and stirrers, in all hotel properties. In order to help reduce plastic’s harmful impact on the environment, Scandic will start phasing out all plastic lids and takeaway items, replacing them with eco-friendly products. Guests with special needs requiring a straw to drink will be able to use sustainable straws instead.

Moving away from plastic has been a growing trend in the travel and food service industry, and for good reason. Plastic waste is one of the most damaging and invasive effects on our eco system and marine life. With numerous reports stating more than 150 million tons of plastic are dumped in the world’s ocean annually, thus causing the deaths of close to 1 million birds and hundreds of thousands of sea mammals getting tangled in plastic waste.

According to a recent report from the UK Government Office for Science, these numbers are expected to triple 2018–2025.
