5p charge on plastic straws UK

We are Final Straw. Our mission is to see the end of single-use plastic straws. The average plastic straw is used for just 20 minutes, but will long outlive its user in landfill, or contribute to the 8 million tonnes of plastic entering our oceans. It doesn't have to be like this. With the introduction of the 5p charge for plastic carrier bags in the UK, their use fell by 85% in just 6 months. We can achieve the same with straws.

Let's make the world a little less rubbish. Support the #FinalStraw campaign to introduce a 5p charge on single-use plastic straws https://goo.gl/wrCKTK
