MGM Resorts are phasing out straws at all of its hotels, restaurants, and nightclubs. The company has told their workers that this is an environmental measure. The company uses 250,000 straws a day and about 100 million a year. That’s getting rid of a lot of plastic. Guests can still ask for straws and the staff will provide one but straws are only given out on request. Straws are given for to go cups and frozen items. MGM Resorts has not reached an agreement with its vendors such as Starbucks, where straws are used often. This will be great for the environment!
