The Marriott Hotels Group has made a decision to remove all plastic straws from its 60-plus hotels in the UK.


The group used 300,000 plastic straws last year.


By removing plastic straws from their UK hotels, Marriott will be making a small but significant step in reducing the volume of plastic which can be damaging to our environment and wildlife. 


Marriott customers who request straws will be offered biodegradable or paper straws in place.
