Marriott plans to remove plastic straws Worldwide by July 2019!
Marriott International today announced that it has adopted a plan to remove disposable plastic straws and plastic stirrers from its managed and franchised properties by July 2019. The move will impact 6,500 properties across 30 brands around the world, and could eliminate the use of more than 1 billion plastic straws per year and about a quarter billion stirrers. The company says that its timeline gives hotel owners and franchisees time to deplete their existing supply of plastic straws, identify sources of alternate straws (which hotels will offer upon request), and educate staff to modify customer service.
