McDonalds has become the latest company to say they are going to stop using plastic straws.

The fast food restaurant will only use paper ones in all its UK and Ireland restaurants, starting from September.

They say they use 1.8 million straws a day in the UK!

But McDonalds say the ban wont happen worldwide yet.

Plastic straws can only be used once and most end up in landfill and the oceans.

Let’s hope McDonald’s New Zealand stops using plastic straws soon too.
