I briefly got excited when I saw this sign at a local McDonalds. Sadly, I quickly realized it is meaningless.
- They proposed reducing the use of plastic straws for only one day
- The targeted audience was only dine-in customers; take-out customers presumably still got plastic straws
- There are straw dispensers on the counter; dine-in customers don’t ask for straws, anyway, they simply take them
Therefore, this one-day event probably resulted in absolutely no reduction in straw usage. This sign continues to sit on the counter near the straw dispensers, from which anyone can still take as many plastic straws as they wish.
You can do better than this, McDonalds.
