I bought & use hard plastic reusable straws. They are dishwasher safe, last forever. Got them at WalMart.
Stop buying things at WallMart.
plastic should be removed from any form of daily use.
please say unless you are disabled and need to use a straw in order to have your drinks go inside your mouth and down you're throat instead of having you're drinks poured all over you're front!
What is stupid? Pointing out the over-use of plastic straws?
I keep a (yeah, plastic) straw in the glove compartment and reuse it. Never really thought about why - 500million a day seems to fill in that blank. Thanks.
whatever happened to cardboard straws anyway?
Yeah, that's right. I'd forgotten all about cardboard straws and if I remember correctly they were waxed....bring back the cardboard straw, I say.
No to plastic...Use glass instead, no more straws to lessen garbage.
Tnx Aileen. Kamusta ka na?
Why can't the companies that make the straws/ styrofoam/plastic containers use paper heavy duty. Plastic coffee cups should use cardboard for coffee and hot and cold drinks I think that would be a big deal to eliminate plastic build up in the land fills. Please STOP BUYING THINGS IN A PLASTIC CONTAINER OR CUPS, ETC.
styrofoam is worse.. not biodegradeable.. now the cardbord stuff they use for coffee cups would make a good enough straw.. =)
I'm more worried about the styrofoam that is still being used...at least you can recycle plastic, no?
Plastic contains questionable chemicals that are linked to disease in many studies. And, for the most part, plastic is downcycled into lower grade products that eventually get thrown away.
Gosh - forgot about the era of paper straws. If they offered paper or plastic I would choose paper but I always use a straw so I cannot sign this.
Btw how would you go about fountain drinks and mixed cocktails?
