When I was a youngster fast food places and restaurants didn't have plastic straws, just the paper ones.  Yeah, the paper ones collapse quickly depending on the beverage, but are better for the environment than plastic.  There's nothing wrong with drinking some beverages without a straw... a milkshake, now that's a little different.

How do peoples all over the world dispose of their daily household kitchen rubbish? If in plastic bags from supermarkets and such, one plastic bag must surely equal many plastic straws so that even if plastic straws are banned, one must quickly next figure out how to eliminate the use of plastic bags. If replaced by paper bags, more trees will have to be chopped that are already overused for cardboard boxes. Also, paper dissolves in the wetness of kitchen rubbish, streaking the home from kitchen to living room down the chute to the ground-floor of the apartment. Whoever can solve this big but simple problem should win the next Fields Prize for Saving The Planet. If there is no such prize, create one. Mother Earth is dying......
