McDonald’s declares a shocking truth!
McDonald’s has announced that “eco-friendly” paper drinking straws, which it started using last year, cannot be easily recycled.
The American company replaced plastic drinking straw, with paper ones, throughout the UK and Ireland, to protect the environment from plastic waste, but recently admitted that the new popsicles are also not easily recycled.
But at the same time, the American company confirmed that it is currently working to find a solution to the problem.
The company’s decision to dispense with plastic lollipops came after a decision in the UK, in April 2018, prohibiting the use of plastic lollipops, since there are disposable plastic products that require hundreds of years to degrade, if not recycled industrially.
