Why does it upset you so much? Do you disagree with the principle of it, that plastic is generally terrible and we should use less of it?

Because I love straws and it’s a pain that they are being made unavailable.

I generally think that consumer-based environmental campaigns like this are marketing techniques that distract from the real solution to fixing environmental problems.

I'm not up on the specifics of this new trend, but i feel like we've done this before. Paper vs plastic bags. I'm not sure cutting down more trees is a good solution.

Or is this a bring-your-own-straw thing?

:thumbsup: if I felt the need to use a straw this is the route I would take, but I'm an adult and don't need straws. I wish the food industry would stop giving them to me. When ever possible I refuse them

You’ll surely still be able to purchase straws and use them whenever you want. Large fast food/drink corporations discontinuing their use is a big plus for the planet, and you’ll adjust your behavior accordingly and hardly notice the change after the new habit forms.

The idea that banning straws will significantly help the environment is a lie. The US accounts for like 1% of all ocean plastic pollution, and most of that shit ain’t fucking straws.

This is just marketing crap to make people feel good, and all it does is make everyday life needlessly annoying.
