McDonald’s customers have been left angry after their plastic straws were replaced with paper ones.

The fast-food restaurant is making the change to reduce the damage to the environment but customers are now companioning they can no longer enjoy their milkshakes.

One customer tweeted With the paper straws they are fine for coke but the other day I had a milkshake and I struggled so so much that I ended up getting one of my own plastic straws at home.’

Customers have been so upset that there is a petition available that has already hit more than 30,000 signatures.

A McDonalds spokesman said ‘Our suppliers have made us paper straws that last at least 30 minutes in most, if not all liquids. ‘They were introduced following customer feedback, and we are pleased to be doing the right thing in removing plastic from our stores.’
