Oakman Inns to #banthestraw on Earth Day
18/04/2017 - 09:15
Oakman Inns is aiming to reduce the 100,000 plastic straws the company uses a month across its pub and restaurant estate with its #banthestraw campaign on Earth Day.

Peter Borg-Neal, Oakman CEO, said: “It sounds ridiculous, but it is entirely accurate to say, that every plastic straw that was ever made, still exists today. They pollute landfills, rivers, roadsides, sewers, beaches and of course oceans and this relatively small amount that this pub group is taking out of circulation, needs to be repeated by every one of my colleagues across the hospitality industry.”
If customers ask for a straw, they will be offered an eco-friendly alternative. Earth Day takes place on April 22nd.
