A&W is the first restaurant chain in North America to ban plastic straws in favour of 100% compostable and marine-degradable paper straws. It’s a change that will help keep about 82 million single-use plastic straws from landfills each year and protect ocean and freshwater life. To announce the change, we repurposed 140,000 of A&W’s last plastic straws into a 35-foot-long positive message. Inspiring people in front of Toronto’s Union Station.
