What’s the deal with this whole straw ban? Well, let’s discuss.
Because they’re the most unnecessary plastic thing the world uses. Countries around the world have been banning straws for years because they fill up landfills and the ocean for no good reason. Unless you have a disability, you really don’t need a straw.
You might say, well at a restaurant I don’t want to touch the glass with my mouth. First of all, why are you eating at a restaurant where you question the cleanliness of the drinkware? The same concern should apply to the fork, the plate, and the food itself.
Second of all, you do realize that the entire contents of the cup is touching the cup… right?
