Bamboo Drinking Straws UK Gets Very Popular
- Sep 14, 2018 -

The bamboo paper straw is an environmentally friendly straw that degrades and disappears into the soil after a few months of use. The global paper straw market can be geographically divided into North America, including Japan's Asia Pacific region, Latin America, Eastern Europe, Western Europe, the Middle East and North Africa.

In March 2018, the United Kingdom and other developed countries introduced a “plastic limit order” to reduce the pollution caused by plastics. Subsequently, other developments or developed countries, such as India, South Africa, Thailand and Costa Rica, have taken similar measures to limit the use of plastic straws and promote the importance of paper straws. The choice of customers for environmentally friendly packaging is the main driver of the growth of the paper pipette market. However, because the paper straw is more expensive than the plastic straw, the price is slightly more expensive, which may become an obstacle to the development of the paper straw market.

Now, it is almost inevitable that the plastic straws will be removed from our daily habits. Because the waste caused by plastic straws is really incalculable. In the United States alone, people lose 500 million straws a day. According to "one less straw", these straws can be connected around the earth two and a half times.

People started to act, they told the restaurant waiter, don't provide a straw. Starting this summer, Seattle will ban all businesses from selling food and beverages with plastics, and straws are no exception; California has a bill that is in the pipeline, requiring restaurants to provide straws only when customers ask for it. Scotland plans to achieve a complete elimination of plastic straws by the end of 2019.

McDonald's also responded positively to the call. In more than 1,300 stores across the UK, McDonald's has replaced plastic straws with biodegradable paper straws, and will only provide straws when they are on demand when they request it. This can also be considered as a test to see how people's attitude towards paper straws is. Once McDonald's is successful in the UK, it will be promoted worldwide.
