McDonald's plastic straw petition: Call to ditch paper straws

PA McDonald's is being called on to stop its roll out of paper straws in the UK and Ireland, amid claims that they "Dissolve" in drinks. The fast food giant is switching from plastic to paper straws at their 1,361 restaurants after customer pressure. An online petition calling for a return to plastic straws has so far garnered more than 35,000 signatures.

Another petition calling for a ban of plastic straws in cinemas has more than 215,000 signatures since going online last year.
