Whole Foods is preparing to stop offering plastic straws at any of its 500 stores.
The company, which is owned by Amazon, announced on Monday that by July it would no longer sell plastic straws in its stores in the U.S., Canada and United Kingdom, according to CNN.
The move marks the first time a national grocery chain has taken the step to ditch plastic straws. It also comes more than 10 years after the company stopped offering disposable plastic bags for customers.
Whole Foods will offer paper straws at its juice and coffee bars starting in July, though CNN noted that plastic straws will be available upon request for customers with disabilities.
In addition, Whole Foods will start selling smaller plastic bags in its produce department. And the company said it would replace hard plastic cases for rotisserie chickens with bags that use 70 percent less plastic.
