Summary from Article:
Sodexo plans to significantly reduce plastics use in its food services in North America planning an estimated elimination over 245 million pieces of single use items and complete removal of its polystyrene packaging by 2025.
This action is stemming from the recent hot debate of reduction of single use plastics, especially straws. Reference: Seattle issues an outright ban of plastic straws and utensils earlier this year, and California recently decided to require customers around the state to specifically ask for straws.
