I don't see why we need them at all. People seemed to be able to drink their liquids just fine before straws came along.
I agree! I've approached restaurants in the San Diego area to ask them to only give straws to customers who ask, and many of them are reluctant to make changes because they think it would go against what consumers want. With your support and others who have signed this petition, we can show restaurants that we don't want straws in our drinks!
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!
They should be over the moon to oblige. As was said earlier they will save $$$ and its all about $$$s isn't it. Corporates don't give a rats about the environment.
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
very good move.stop using them now.
There are biodegradable straws. Boyd's Coffee in PDX uses them.
