How about an aggressive recycling program? Should be in place anyway!

I like using straws, esp when I go out to eat. But, I think its a great idea to only get a straw if you ask. When I go out to eat with my family, we're all given straws, but Im the only one who uses them. So right there there's several straws completely wasted. I think that's how it is with many family/groups of people who go out to eat. To have to ask for one would cut down immensely on the waste.

This is my second year of picking up litter in my neighbourhood. Straws and its wrapping is a key item. Great idea. The total of all those straws sure adds up. Why can't we have openings on the lids like coffee? It is true, most of the straws go before the cups, so are rarely used.

No lo que hay que inventar es una botella con un sorbete incluido que tome la bebida desde abajo y que se habrá en una posición de acuerdo a la tapa es sencillo y luego pasa a ser materia prima igual que lo es el envase o la tapa.

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?
