Des Moines restaurant stops giving out straws

DES MOINES - Starting this week, a locally-owned restaurant is now longer giving out straws.

St. Kilda in Des Moines stopped automatically handing out straws with their beverages.

It was an idea a customer had after seeing it done in other cities.

It's something they say is already getting a positive response.

Customers can still get a straw if they ask for one.

So far, the restaurant says they have used about 50 percent fewer straws than normal.
