I like using straws, esp when I go out to eat. But, I think its a great idea to only get a straw if you ask.

This is my second year of picking up litter in my neighbourhood. Straws and its wrapping is a key item. Great idea. The total of all those straws sure adds up. Why can't we have openings on the lids like coffee? It is true, most of the straws go before the cups, so are rarely used.

Shocking. That's all I need to say here about this news.

Agree with Eddie no packaging unless biodegradeable and with Lynda regarding straws only for those customers who really need them. We all benefit from everything we do to help the environment.

What ever happened to the paper straws. Or what ever happened to be able to drink without the aid of straws. I know the are essential in some medical situations. Not for yr can of coke tho.
