According to Single-Use Foodware Plastics, Toxics and Litter Reduction Ordinance (File No. 181004), the law restricts the distribution of single-use plastic straws, including compostable plastic straws. Acceptable single-use straws (such as paper straws) can only be made available upon request. A single-use plastic straw may only be provided to a customer who specifically requests a plastic straw to accommodate a disability or medical need.
In compliance with the ordinance, Gong cha developed a collection of reusable drinkware for your convenience.
