Sodexo, a food services and facilities management company, announced a North American Single-Use Plastics Reduction Plan that will eliminate single-use plastic bags and stirrers by 2019; polystyrene foam items, such as cups, lids and food containers, by 2025; and shift straws to a “by request” item that will still be available to customers who need them while moving toward more sustainable materials.

“As a company serving consumers in universities, workplaces, hospitals, schools, stadiums and so many other venues, we understand both the potential impact we can make through a commitment to reduction and the real benefit that some of these products bring to people every day,” said Ted Monk, vice president for corporate responsibility at Sodexo, in a statement. “We believe there’s tremendous room for reducing waste without having a single person who uses our services feel like they are being excluded.”
