Plastic-straw ban hits Seattle next month

After 10 years since it was first introduced, Seattle’s ban on plastic straws and utensils is set to go into effect.

Beginning July 1, consumers will have to do without straws and plastic utensils, or instead embrace the alternatives: like paper-based straws and degradable forks and spoons.

The ban is expected to keep about 1 million plastic straws from entering Seattle’s waste stream each month, according to Dune Ives of the Lonely Whale Foundation.

Ives joined other environmental activists and city officials at a news conference Tuesday onboard Greenpeace’s icebreaker vessel, the Arctic Sunrise, which is moored at Lake Union in preparation for a protest against the Canada’s Trans Mountain pipeline.

Suck on this...
