    Is the paragraph redundant? Is it natural English?

    But a report raises the alarm that disposable chopsticks pose risks of their own for consumers and the environment. Not only are disposable chopsticks extremely wasteful, they also are not necessarily sanitary.

    I don't find it redundant, but that would depend on what preceded it.

    'But' before 'they also' is not obligatory.
