Significant step forward – but bigger strides needed by government and industry

Welcoming news that Wagamama has committed to ending the use of plastic straws, Friends of the Earth waste campaigner Julian Kirby said:

“Wagamama’s decision to end the use of plastic straws is a welcome move which other restaurants will hopefully follow.

“This is a significant step in the right direction, but we need far bigger strides from government, industry and retailers to properly tackle the scourge of plastic waste and its impact on our environment.”
