Nestle Fiji will now be using paper straws instead of plastic straws in their MILO UHT products.
This will eliminate nearly 250,000 plastic straws from Fiji every year which is in line with the company's commitment to make 100% of its packaging recyclable or reusable by 2025.
General Manager Jason Jezewski says plastic waste is a big challenge in Fiji and they are committed to reducing their plastic use.
Jezewski says they will continue to invest in more sustainable packaging innovations in the future.
MILO UHT products with paper straws will be available in stores later this month.
