Goodbye to plastic straws at London City Airport’s food and drink outlets

Advert Travel Gazette

IN a move which will delight green-campaigners, plastic straws are no longer available in any of London City Airport’s food and drink outlets, and have been replaced with biodegradable paper straws.

The decision comes following heightened awareness of the waste impact of single use plastics, and London Evening Standard’s ‘The Last Straw’ campaign, which aims to bring an end to Londoners’ needless use of plastic drinking straws, the airport said in a press release.

Until this new measure, approximately 100,000 plastic straws were distributed by London City Airport outlets each year, among a proportion of its 4.5 million annual passengers.
