Gun Lake Casino announced this week that the casino will be completely free of plastic straws starting November 1st, 2018. However, they won't be completely free of all straws. According to a report from WWMT, the casino said they plan to replace the straws with a certified compostable straw. Those type of straws are the same ones that are being used by other businesses such as Starbucks and Marriott International. According to the report, officials with Gun Lake Casino say that they use over 3 million straws per year through the casino's three bars, two restaurants and other beverage services that are offered at the establishment.

So, what happens if you still want to use a plastic straw and not a compostable straw at Gun Lake Casino? Well, I'm not sure. You might want to call ahead and ask. I'd hate for you to get kicked out and not be able to play the penny slots.
