Is this a conspiracy?
You can't tell me that plastic which no one recycles is better than paper that comes from all kinds of sources.
I am going to start a website to campaign to bring back the paper straw.
The plan is simple.
Every time you go into a restaurant and they try to give you a plastic straw ask them nicely if they have a paper one. Eventually, THEY'LL TAKE THE HINT!
I'll post here when I have the site going.
I totally agree. All those plastic straws just end up in a landfill. What was wrong with paper?
RE: I totally agree. All those plastic ...
If you leave a paper straw in a soda for longer than an hour it goes soggy.
