French company Sodexo to launch plastics reduction policy in North America

Food services company Sodexo SA unveiled its single-use plastics reduction plan in North America.

The plan seeks to eliminate single-use plastic bags and stirrers by 2019 and polystyrene foam items such as cups, lids and food containers by 2025, the company said in an Oct. 17 news release.

The French company will also work to reduce straw use by adopting a 'by request' policy and move toward the use of more sustainable materials unless plastic is required for accessibility by 2019.

Sodexo expects the policy to eliminate over 245 million pieces of single-use plastic items.
