New research suggests paper drinking-straws may be more harmful than plastic ones.
The straw debacle is insane. Some of the new paper ones (or bamboo or whatever) that don't melt in 2 minutes aren't bad unless they have toxic chemicals in them. Stainless steel is dumb. You have to remember to bring that straw with you everywhere? One of the big benefit to straws is the sanitary aspect. Who is going to keep their stainless straws clean.
I'm with you, odds of a Colorado straw ending up in a sea turtle nose is nil. Why is it an issue here?
My understanding is that the negative impact of plastic straws was written by an 8th grader, not a scientist. Plastic straws are the best. We changed our lifestyles because of a teenager was looking for an easy “A” on an essay for home economics. I did mine on the Origin of the fork on the dining table.
Nada, they suck. I believe Dana Carvey has a good straw comedic bit
Post consumer content is the bane of the modern era. I hate it. The amount of waste paper and plastic from fast food and most restaurants is appalling. I seek restaurants where good old porcelain and glass is used - and that’s not easy. Straws? Forget it. I don’t use them. There’s more going on here that sucks...
