It’s the last straw for single-use plastics at Ben & Jerry’s. The socially conscious ice-cream company is moving to wooden spoons and paper straws. And it’s happening in time for a major ice-cream holiday.
By April 9, 2019, Free Cone Day, Ben & Jerry’s Scoop Shops will complete the transition to wooden spoons, the company said in a statement, noting that paper straws will be available by request. Plastic straws have been available by request only since August, with many locations already offering non-plastic straws.
