You will not find a single plastic straw in any of the food and drink outlets of the London City Airport. The old plastic straws have been replaced with biodegradable paper straws.

The decision came following heightened awareness of the waste impact of use of plastics, and London Evening Standard’s ‘The Last Straw’ campaign, which aims to bring an end to Londoners’ needless use of plastic drinking straws, the airport said in a press release.

Approximately 100,000 plastic straws were distributed by London City Airport outlets each year.
