A&W Unveils New Public Installation Made With Plastic Straws


TORONTO — A&W Canada has unveiled a public art installation made from the last of the company’s plastic straws. In June 2018, A&W announced it would phase out plastic straws in all its locations by the end of the year — helping to keep approximately 82-million pieces of single-use plastics from landfills each year.

“Reducing waste from landfills is a top priority for A&W and this is one big way that we can make a difference,” says Susan Senecal, CEO of A&W Canada.

The burger chain has replaced plastic straws with paper straws that are sustainably sourced and biodegrade within three to six months.
