Banning Straws

Recommended Posts

There's been a lot of talk lately about banning plastic straws because they're hazardous to our environment. I agree but instead of banning them all together why not make a biodegradable version? Many people rely on straws to eat or drink because they are unable to otherwise. What are your thoughts on this?

I'm all for banning straws and other wasteful and unnecessary single-use products. If people rely on straws for various medical reasons and whatnot, then they can use reusable straws or go to a pharmacy to purchase a batch of straws. I mean, this is not something unsolvable or complicated problem.

Same. I am in favor of banning the use of straw. It is harmful for the environment partularly to animals. There a lot of alternatives that can be used. Here in our country small type of bamboos are being used as an alternative. I saw other people using metal straws that they keep and use it many times.

I've tried paper straws and they work great, but sadly they are only single-use. But straws made out of bamboo sounds good!
