Ceres Fruit Juices is migrating from plastic to paper straws on juice boxes

A few years ago there was a huge public campaign to ban plastic straws, with celebrities all over the world announcing they’d never use them again, and a resulting rush to bring alternative products to market. It was somewhat effective – and many of us have become used to never seeing them, never using them, and certainly never asking for them, Pippa Hudson reminds us.

But there’s one place where they were still pervasive, and that’s stuck to the back of a single serving fruit juice box or small long-life milk carton.

Wendy Knowler says it’s taken a while for the consumer pressure to reach the big manufacturers, with the largest fruit juice packaging operation in Africa has just announced it’s switching from plastic to paper straws.
