Burger King Singapore goes strawless

The move is said to have started since October 15.

Burger King has announced that all 42 of their Singapore outlets have stopped giving dine-in customers straws and plastic lids for their drinks.

According to The New Paper, the chain hopes that the initiative will have their customers think whether it is needed at all.

The straws and lids are still provided on delivery orders and upon request for dine-in customers.

Burger King Singapore is the latest in a string of brands in Asia lessening their straw use. Last June, KFC Singapore has launched their No Straws initiative, aiming to reduce 17.8 million metric tonnes of plastic every year.

McDonald’s Malaysia followed as they stopped giving plastic straws as August started, while Starbucks Korea trialled paper straws and replaced plastic stirrers with wooden ones.
