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!

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?

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.

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
