Pollution is a serious issue. The price to remediate in the future will be much more than the convenience enjoyed today, inflation-adjusted.

If only one has those Thanos stones.

Then not only the plastic but its users can, erhh, disappear simultaneously.

More than not using plastic or paper straws, bring your own cups and chopsticks.

Think of this poor long-suffering Mother Earth and all her other living things. They have suffered enough.

Enough is enough.

it is intersting that people have fixated on plastic straws, when there are other more widely used 'one use' plastic items such as plastic water bottles, coffee cup lids, shampoo bottles, detergent containers, plastic bags..........the list is endless.

Banning plastic straws is absolutely justifiable, however, replacements for it have to be found, as straws appear to have been around for so many years, and people are simply so used to using it.
Believe it or not, it's true.

If you must suck, suck on biodegradable straws.  What has happened to peoples' drinking habit?  Why not drink from the cup instead of sucking straws?

You are on fire, aren't you?

Old-fashioned pop-top cans used to cause littering problems, as people usually chucked the pull rings all over the shop, then a new type of cans were invented, of which the pull rings were still attached when the cans were popped open. This is the solution that works like a charm.

Smart?
Believe it or not, it's true.
