As much as I believe in reducing waste, this is one I cannot agree to. How does one then drink a slurpee, or the last bit of milkshake out of the bottom of the cup? Maybe straw manufacturers need to make straws from a less contaminating plastic so they aren't a health hazard, and can be recycled along with other plastic, and make them without wrappers. If people spent a few more minutes a day thinking about waste and recycling instead of having their face stuck in their cell phone or whatever, maybe this world would be a little tidier.

I found pyrex glass ones at the local health food store. The stainless ones I won from a company on Facebook.... can't think of the name at the moment. Should be able to find them on Google though.

I want to mention something. Straws are very important and necessary for many disabled people. I understand what you are saying and think the rest of us can find other means but I just wanted to point that out.

In saying no to plastic straws, it is very helpful to offer a convenient alternative. Does anyone even make paper straws anymore?

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!
