DFW Airport Phasing Out Plastic Straws


Irving, Texas. September 24, 2019

As a part of DFW’s continual effort to reduce its environmental footprint, our concessionaires began to phase out single-use plastic straws at all terminal locations September 16.

Restaurants are being encouraged to provide a naturally degradable straw alternative to customers upon request and offer reusable straw products for customer purchase.

With the implementation of this initiative, DFW Airport will achieve 16 of the 17 United Nations Sustainable Development Goals. This will fulfill the requirements for Goal 12, “Responsible Consumption and Production,” and Goal 14, DFW’s newest U.N. Goal achievement “Life Below Water.”
