Brains has joined the Straws Suck campaign and have stopped giving out plastic straws with every drink since Monday 31st July.
The Straws Suck campaign is a global movement in the hospitality industry to reduce plastic straw usage. Plastic constitutes approximately 90 per cent of all waste floating on the sea’s surface. Plastic straws add significantly to this problem and are entirely avoidable.
Many pubs are doing their part by joining the movement to ‘Go Green’ and are only giving out straws when they are requested; no longer giving them out automatically.
The scheme was first launched in 8 of our pubs. The pubs involved in the initial trial of the Straws Suck campaign are; Yard Bar and Kitchen, Ty Mawr, Red Dragon, Fox and Hounds, Ty Risha, Pear Tree, Malsters Llandaff and Penwig.
It has now been rolled out across all our pubs in the estate.
We would welcome feedback to the campaign via Brains Brewery on Facebook or @brainsbrewery on Twitter.
