Wimpy says no to plastic straws

The consumer campaign to say no to plastic straws has added another much loved national brand to its ranks after Wimpy announced this week that, in honour of  international plastic free month, it will introduce the use of improved paper straws in July.

“As a brand that is centred around shared moments by families, we are proud to play our part in preserving the planet and marine life by halting the use of plastic straws and replacing them with paper straws,” said Jacques Cronje, Marketing Executive at Wimpy. “Stopping the use of plastic straws may seem like a small act to some but it’s important for us to ensure that future generations and their families can also enjoy moments together in a clean environment that is not polluted by plastic.”

Wimpy encourages its patrons and South Africans at large to play their part by supporting this worthy cause of going plastic-free because small good efforts put together give a positive and significant result. “This is a change that anyone from any background can apply in their lives. Together we can protect and preserve our planet for generations to come,” continues Cronje.
