KFC Canada removes plastic bags, straws from restaurants
KFC Canada announced a series of new sustainability and environmental commitments aimed at curbing the company’s use of plastics in restaurants across the country.
Plastic straws and plastic bags will no longer be used or provided at any KFC restaurant locations across Canada by October 2019. This removes 50 million plastic straws and 10 million plastic bags from restaurants, landfills, waterways, and the communities in which KFC Canada operates.
Earlier in 2019, KFC Canada announced its alliance with KFC’s across the globe on a commitment that all plastic-based, consumer-facing packaging will be recoverable or reusable by 2025.
