A club and late-night bar is to offer biodegradable straws to customers.

PRYZM and Steinbeck & Shaw in The Parade, Watford, will no longer serve cocktails, mixers or soft drinks with traditional plastic straws from February 19.

The change comes following owners The Deltic Group’s eco-friendly and sustainability commitment.

Tom Miell, general manager, said: “We’re all about serving up a great night out but from February 19 the only straws we’ll offer to customers will be made from renewable plant sources.

“They’ll biodegrade in six months rather than hundreds of years, so they won’t add to the world’s pollution problems.

“Our customers and colleagues are more environmentally aware so I’m sure they’ll welcome the change and agree that plastic sucks.”

The Deltic Group shares concerns about pollution caused by plastic straws in the sea and landfill sites.

Venues are spreading the message on their social media sites through #nostrawsattached.
