Not all plastic alternatives are created equal.
It’s important to note that substitutes for single-use plastics should be carefully chosen. We suggest first opting for reusable products, prior to moving to single-use materials. Substitutes should be made of non-plastic materials such as paper, sugar cane, bamboo, or other similar materials. Remember: the straw/stirrer ordinance does not allow for biodegradable or compostable plastics as substitutes.
