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 not go Back to the original Paper Straws ? They can be recycled , or burnt as fuels

Simple: Just use paper straws if you need a straw at all.

or i reuse mine dozens of times and throw them in the dishwasher once a week, don't need to wash them more often, since i'm the only one using them and i don't drink sugary drink, so no ants or other stuff.

You're right, we really need to think about all the single-use plastics we drink from. We drink from a straw for 10 minutes, drink from a plastic water bottle for an hour, but the plastic stays in our environment for many years. Thanks for your comment!

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.

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