Yes, real straws and perhaps it could give income to less developed nations who produce them.

why just target Applebees? All restaurants and fast food places should be targeted for this!

CRUCIAL to solving this problem is to stop using straws. Talk about a completely unnecessary invention that does nothing but cause harm to marine life etc.

Drinking from straws gives you mouth wrinkles. If you don't have any concern for environmental issues, hopefully you are still vain enough to not ask for a straw at Applebee's when the policy is passed.

Years ago straws were made out of paper - i think they were lightly coated with wax or something similar. So, they would last as long as it took to finish your drink, and then binned. I'm sure they could be made environmentally friendly again.

I pick up straws from the beach across the road from where I live every day - they are everywhere!

Thanks for doing that Kathryn, if you want to collect them and ship them to us we will be making a large plastic straw display to demonstrate the effect of these single-use products
