Ben & Jerry’s will stop offering plastic straws and spoons in more than 600 stores worldwide.
It estimates the change could eliminate 30 million spoons and 2.5 million straws annually.
The company expects to fully transition to paper straws and wooden spoons by April 9, 2019.
By the end of 2020, Ben & Jerry’s hopes to shift away from clear plastic cups, plastic-lined cups and plastic lids as well.
Its process already includes using cage-free eggs along with fair trade and non-GMO ingredients. The brand also launched the “dairy-free” ice cream line.
And remember, there is an even easier way to enjoy a good zero-waste ice-cream wherever you are, just chose to have your ice cream on a cone!
