The big coffee brand Starbucks is planning to stop using plastic straws from their stores worldwide by 2020.
Cutting out the plastic straws are estimated to be around 1 billion straws each year.
Instead, customers will be given plastic lids that are designed to be used without straws. The lid will still be produced in plastic though.
“Not using a straw is the best thing we can do for the environment.” said the Colleen Chapman vice-president of Starbucks.
