GOOD DEEDSIn an effort to cut down on plastic waste, all the restaurants in Mario Batali and Joe Bastianich's group will be instituting a "straws on request policy." Starting next month, guests will get "paper or compostable" straws unless they ask for plastic straws, and the restaurants are already using bamboo stirrers. A rep notes that the "restaurant group alone could remove a quarter of a million straws and stirrers from the waste stream in a given year." Head over to Eater National for more information. [~EN~]
