Sands China discontinues plastic straws at all properties

Casino operator Sands China Ltd. said Jan. 2 that it ended the use of plastic straws at all its sites to reduce single-use plastic consumption.

The ban was implemented Jan. 1 and will save about 1 ton of plastic annually. The move is part of parent company Las Vegas Sands Corp.'s ECO360 initiative, which aims to minimize its environmental impact.

Sands China will also employ other plastic-reduction measures, including replacing its hotel's bathroom amenities with refillable dispensers, redesigning its complimentary bottled water and installing water filters.
