Dubai restaurants ditching straws and more, with help from Sea Shepherd

In Dubai, restaurateurs have started working with marine conservation group Sea Shepherd's Middle East chapter, which was launched in December 2017, to eliminate straws and single-use plastic cups and cutlery.

Local establishments like Freedom Pizza, Bikers Cafe, Flow, The Noodle House, Pierchic, SingleFin Cafe and the Yumtingz food trucks have already ditched plastic straws, and some of them are using Sea Shepherd's re-useable cups to sell to customers. More at The National.
