Tesco Lotus is continuing the implementation of its no plastic policy, announcing an end to the use of plastic straws at all its outlets nationwide from December 4.

Salinla Seehaphan, Corporate Affairs Director, said “We will achieve our goal through three steps: reduce, retrieve, and reuse. Accord to a research, an estimated 100 million plastic straws are used per day or 35 billion a year. Plastic straw is not considered an reusable item. Tesco wants to be part of the solution in ending plastic usage. The use of plastic straw will end on December 4, which has been declared Thai Environment Day.”

Tesco will provide an alternate paper straw (only in Tesco express), if necessary, she added.
