The latest cost-cutting measure from Vegas casinos
MGM Resorts International recently announced its intention to cut back on straw usage to reduce plastic waste and help protect the environment.
Instead of automatically a putting straw in beverages, MGM now provides them only upon customer request at its 17 U.S. casinos. That goes for stirring and drinking straws.
“We need to be mindful of the everyday and even more trivial impact we have on the environment,” said Cindy Ortega, MGM’s chief sustainability officer. “When you put these small items together, it’s not trivial.”
Since when does corporate America care about the environment? You know how much savings these places are getting by not putting straws into drinks? Neither do I, but it’s a good chunk. Don’t be shocked if Vegas hotels one day require guests to bring their own bath towel or buy one from them. It’s coming. You want AC? You’ll have to buy it. Want a TV in room? That’ll cost you. Want maid service? That will definitely cost you.
