I like Applebees, but I'll agree they could use other than plastic straws... Jim Amrhein

There are biodegradable straws. Boyd's Coffee in PDX uses them.

It never occurred to me, until I read Causes that plastic straws littered our environment like that! I hardly ever use a straw, don't think about where do they go. There must be plenty of rubbish that I don't think about. It does prove to me, that every day brings a revelation!

It is a paradox that for the whole life one does so many things for his children, but never cares to protect the environment which the same children are going to inherit.

This is a great point. I think the same thing. Why don't we do a better job of protecting the earth for our children?

How's about we just go back to using paper straws? It is impractical to try to ban straws for a myriad of reasons, not the least of which is health.

Thanks for your comment Timonthy! We think to solve the problem of single-use plastic non-recyclable straws entering landfills and oceans, one way is to support alternatives like paper straws. Thanks!

Why don't we just ban all plastic straws from being manufactured? Make them out of recycled paper and coat them with food-grade wax. They should work just as well.

It just another kind of 'privilege' we don't need to prove we are good enough by over consuming, lets get rid of the junk and live and let live!
