Knives out! UK top food chain Leon announces it will ditch plastic cutlery from its outlets within months
UK High street restaurant chain Leon is to ditch plastic cutlery, it declared yesterday.
Throwaway knives, forks and spoons which end up choking the environment will be phased out within months at its 50-plus outlets.
The announcement is a victory for the Daily Mail’s campaign to end the scourge of plastics polluting the planet and will pile pressure on rivals to follow suit.
Coffee house Le Pain Quotidien has already switched to biodegradable alternatives but the trailblazers shame the majority of high street chains which still hand out plastic disposables.
