Why don't we just ban all plastic straws from being manufactured? Make them out of recycled paper and coat them with food-grade wax. They should work just as well.
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?
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
