I’m all about being eco-friendly! That’s why I’m excited Starbucks is joining their hometown of Seattle’s efforts to reduce ocean waste. The coffee company plans to ditch plastic straws by 2020, TIME reports. The ban will make them the largest food and beverage company operating globally to do so. Strawless lids, much like sippy cups, will be made available for certain drinks at their 8,000 stores in the U.S. and Canada. This should eliminate more than 1 billion plastic straws a year.
