Plastic straw ban in England comes into force

The government has now made it illegal in almost all circumstances for businesses to give plastic straws to customers.

Along with the plastic straw ban, exemptions are still in place to protect disabled people and those with medical conditions to request a plastic straw when visiting a pub or restaurant and purchase them from pharmacies.

With increasing focus on cleaner oceans, protecting the environment and reducing plastic waste, we have removed the lines from sale online.

Paper and biodegradable straws are still available to buy, and both have gained huge traction against their plastic counterparts over the years.

Boxes of paper straws from £2.44
