Can we ask them to use biodegradable plastic instead. Such as from corn starch or maybe even banana peel.
Straws can be excellently made from: STRAW..
That's a good idea! Exactly the way we call it.
Let them use the god's Gift Mouth
There should be a notice on every straw if it not biodegradable "this is not biodegradable Straw"
I like Applebees, but I'll agree they could use other than plastic straws... Jim Amrhein
Make then out of bio-degradable hemp or don't use any at all!
re-use plastic bags. take your own containers to the delicatessen counter for olives etc!!! Explain why. You'd think more people would be taking these small steps by now in view of the urgency!
Straws were once made of, youve guessed it! straw! then they were made of paper, until the plastics industries got on the bandwaggon ,along with plastic knives,forks ,spoons etc but thats another story.
I'm one of the people who like to drink icy beverages from a straw, because it keeps the cold from my teeth. Paper ones would be fine, if you can get them anymore.
Cups.. with.. Built in straws?!
