It’s The Last straw For Waste

THE EUROPEAN COMMISSION has proposed that single-use plastics such as straws, cotton buds and cutlery should be banned across the European Union (EU). The Commission said that approximately 500,000 tonnes of plastic waste from the EU end up in the sea every year.

The Wright Group are doing their bit to get rid of single-use plastic straws in all their venues across Dublin, including Wrights Findlater Howth. CEO Michael Wright explains “ Plastic straws can take 100 years to break down, sometimes longer. Just as reusable shopping bags have become the norm, so should reusable straws. As a leader in the hospitality industry, it’s really important that we make efforts to reduce waste and do our bit for the environment.”

“We’ve always been about disrupting norms and leading the way in the hospitality sector, this is only one more step in a long series of measures we are have planned, in order to make our business more eco-friendly.”

Michael Wright CEO said “since we have so many venues, we felt it was time to take this step. We listened to our customers and it’s what they wanted. The feedback so far has been overwhelmingly positive.”
