Business Insider reports that McDonald's will start testing plastic straw alternatives at select US locations this year.
The announcement comes amid calls from environmental activists urging McDonald's and other food conglomerates to ditch plastic straws.
Several US cities have already enacted their own bans.
Because plastic straws are tiny and don't easily biodegrade.
The straws can commonly slip through the cracks of a city's waste-recycling process, clogging ponds, rivers, and oceans.
The fast-food giant will trial alternatives to plastic straws at select locations later this year.
Nationwide, McDonald's distributes millions of drinks every day, which means many of their straws have likely ended up in the wild.
In the UK, the company has already decided to adopt biodegradable paper straws.
