Ben & Jerry's Ice Cream have announced plans to ditch plastic straws and spoons in their 600+ Scoop Shops by April 2019! The move will prevent 2.5million plastic straws, and 30 million plastic spoons from being used.
The company also plans to phase out clear plastic cups, plastic-lined cups and plastic lids by the end of 2020. Biodegradable and compostable options are being explored to replace the polyethylene that lines Ben & Jerry's ice cream tubs to create a moisture barrier. Ben & Jerry's in Manly has already got the wooden spoons. 👍
