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.

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