A popular club is joining the movement for eco-change by banning plastic straws.

Fiction, South Street, Romford, will now offer a biodegradable alternative instead for cocktails, mixers or soft drinks, reducing plastic consumption and its environmental impact.

The move means straws will no longer be served in a drink but the new biodegradable ones will be made available if needed.

General manager James Hall said: “We’re all about serving up a great night out but from February 19, the only straws we will offer to customers will be made from renewable plant sources.

“They will biodegrade in six months rather than hundreds of years so they won’t add to the planet’s pollution problems.

“Our customers and colleagues are more environmentally aware so I’m sure they’ll welcome the change and agree that plastic sucks!”

The Romford club is also spreading the message on their social media with #nostrawsattached
