From Starbucks to McDonald’s, these huge businesses are taking action on plastic pollution

Major businesses aren’t the only ones looking to reduce their use of plastic.

This summer saw a ban on the use of plastic straws, utensils and cocktail picks in the city of Seattle come into force.

Under the directive, food service businesses in the city will have to provide customers with “compliant options” such as straws made from compostable paper or compostable plastic, according to Seattle Public Utilities.

If businesses do not comply with the regulations, they could face a fine of $250.
