Chico Calif.—Restaurants in Chico are following the trend and switching to paper straws.

Hula’s Restaurant in Chico has stopped using plastic straws.

The owner of Hula’s Restaurant, Linda Storey is encouraging other restaurants to do the same.

Restaurants can also at the least not automatically put straws out for customers, but wait for customers to ask for a straw.

Linda Storey from Hula’s says it’s the right thing to do being our landfills are filling up with plastic and the straw is a single use plastic item.

You can see in the video why Storey holds this change as a high priority.

Paper straws can be more expensive, but Storey says protecting the environment is more important to her than her bottom line.
