麦当劳环保纸吸管不能回收,网友:???
来源:极速5分彩—极速五分彩官网网    日期: 2019-08-08

随着环保理念越来越普及,各大企业也陆陆续续推出环保产品,不过麦当劳的这一波操作,却让不少网友看不懂了。

BBC:麦当劳的纸质吸管不能回收


据BBC报道,快餐巨头麦当劳新推出了环保纸吸管,然而这一类吸管却是不能回收的。

McDonald's new paper straws - described as "eco-friendly" by the fast food giant - cannot be recycled.

要知道,去年所有在英国的麦当劳分店,都以绿色环保为名淘汰了塑料吸管——值得注意的是,塑料吸管是可回收的。

Last year, it axed plastic straws, even though they were recyclable, in all its UK branches as part of a green drive. 

这一消息由英国《太阳报》率先爆料,他们发现了麦当劳内部的记录,显示纸质吸管“目前不可回收,除非有进一步指示,当与其他一般垃圾一同处理”。

The issue was first revealed by The Sun newspaper, which published an internal McDonald's  memo saying that the company's paper straws "are not yet recyclable and should be disposed of in general waste until further notice."

不过,麦当劳却表示,其原因在于新型的纸质吸管不容易回收,所以直接扔到一般垃圾里面。但并不是说这种材质不行,而是纸质吸管的厚度让回收处理难度增大。

But the fast food giant says the new paper straws are not yet easy to recycle and should be put into general waste. McDonald's says the materials are recyclable, but their thickness makes it difficult for them to be processed.

除了回收问题,新型吸管同样不受顾客待见,最重要的莫过于:饮料还没喝完,纸质吸管就溶解了,特别是奶昔类饮品,喝起来太费劲!

But some customers were unhappy with the new straws, saying they dissolved before a drink could be finished, with milkshakes particularly hard to drink.

“纸吸管并不能发挥作用,喝奶昔的时候就散架了!而且纸吸管不可回收,这是谁推行的?”
 

“没用的纸吸管”


“纸吸管唯一的问题,就是和液体不搭。”


而麦当劳则感觉有些委屈,“由于顾客反馈,我们改善了纸质吸管,材料可以回收,但是现在的厚度又让废物处理供应商很难做。”

"As a result of customer feedback, we have strengthened our paper straws, so while the materials are recyclable, their current thickness makes it difficult for them to be processed by our waste solution providers," a McDonald's spokesman said.

鉴于新吸管的种种状况,已经有不少客户希望麦当劳用回原来的塑料吸管,截至8月8日,请愿人数达到51000人。

A petition by irate McDonald's customers to bring back plastic straws has so far been signed by 51,000 people.
  



据BBC报道,英国的麦当劳每天要用180万支吸管,改用纸质吸管对于帮助减少一次性塑料用品是重要的举措。如果没有回收,一次性塑料用品的分解需要数百年的时间。

The restaurant chain uses 1.8 million straws a day in the UK, so the move to paper was a significant step in helping to reduce single-use plastic. Some single-use plastic products can take hundreds of years to decompose if not recycled.

广大网友们还发现了另一个问题,即便纸吸管ok,为啥你的其他产品都是塑料呢?

“麦当劳的饮料盖子还是塑料啊,换吸管意义何在……”


“那他们每年送出的数以吨计的开心乐园餐塑料玩具呢?”


当然,也有人支持麦当劳的纸吸管推广:

“纸吸管不可回收,却可以被生物降解。”


好了,现在就剩下最后一个问题:用过的纸吸管,属于什么垃圾呢?
