The lawmakers don't care about the disabled with the plastic straw bans.

Oh I have an IDEA!!! PAPER STRAWS!!! **mind blows up**

BTW, US consumes only 175 million straws, not 500 million per day. Buy Bamboo Straws here: https://www.amazon.com/s?url=me%3DA3H3YR9A3R6FI6&field-keywords=Bamboo+straws

There are soft silicone straws that are super flexible and reusable maybe that can work?

Plastic straws represent 0.02% of the plastic waste in the ocean while 46% of the plastic waste is product of big fishing companies who abandon fishing nets in the ocean. We need to put the blame in the big companies for the pollution of the earth instead of believing that every individual can make a change in the environment if they recycle or use textile bags

Not mentioned were silicone straws which are superior to even single use plastic and not bad for environment.
Alice Smith (1 month ago)
Chris S not all disabled people can use plastic straws as the could be allergic and glass, bamboo are too hard. Paper ones brake down over time as some will take about an hr to have their drink also they can be use in hot drinks.
Carsyn Camp (1 month ago)
Chris S People can be allergic to silicone and don’t hold their shape.

So wait!! U can shoot up w/ plastic syringe compliments of the gov’t- take a poo in the street, smoke a doobie w/ no retribution— but if you get caught contributing or using a plastic straw- up to 6 mos. in the can? Folks? Really?

Alice Smith (1 month ago)
Did you even watch the clip. I guess the answer would be No like most of the people commenting they have already explained why they can’t use those straws they are to hard. Just imagine every time you need to have a drink you need a straw how about those who are not disabled say no to straws.

Soals (2 months ago)
It’s called a reusable straw? Why is this a problem I don’t understand.
Kailyn Strain (1 month ago)
Soals reusable straws may not work for certain people as they are fixed and can’t bend. Which causes a problem for those who are laying down in hospitals or at home because they may not be able to sit. Some people have limited mobility making it difficult to properly clean them. Glass straws have the danger of breaking if someone has a severe facial tick and same goes for metal which could break teeth. Paper straws are useless because they break down in liquid and don’t keep shape. I hope this helped you understand

Who's still throwing trash in the ocean? If you throw it in a trash can it goes to a dump. Why only worry about plastic straws? If they end up in the ocean then so does everything else? Why go after the straws?

There are paper straws that work just as fine but degrade a lot quicker.

They don’t work in hot drinks and can break down while the person is still in the middle of their drink.

not in hot drinks fam
Liz Pupp (2 months ago)
You can literally buy bamboo or metal straws dafuq or literally save them for later use
Chell Ray (2 months ago)
they're not ideal for the disabled though. did you not even watch the video? metal conducts heat, so in a hot drink they can injure the user, and in a very cold drink it would become painful to use too. bamboo straws are inflexible so people with say, a condition which makes their head tilt in an usual way like a spine deformity wouldn't be able to use it. honestly resuable plastic straws are fine so long as they reuse them. plastic doesnt degrade which is bad for the environment but its good for something that needs to be used frequently. so long as they dont throw them out what's the harm?

Iv seen reusable straws that aren’t paper being advertised that are easy to clean and cary with you. Why do we have to negatively impact the future of our planet for something that has an easy solution? If there wasn’t an alternative, I would understand but for this there is. We all had our part in what was done to the environment so we all must do our part to fix it or at the BARE MINIMUM stop it from getting worse. If you can’t be bothered to buy one than they should only be given in cases where they have a disability, that should still help the issue.

Misty foot because not everyone is willing to WASH them properly. It's pretty expensive to do and takes a lot of labor (in the case of hospitals or care homes of the such) I hate to say it, but it's just more safer and sanitary to use disposables ones. I'm sorry, but it's true

ヅ M I N K * (2 months ago)
Jacob Chang I just said they should have bendable straws built in the cups like sturdy water bottles/canteens available at common areas. If they're getting rid of flimsy bendy straws because of how much people burn through them a day, then why not just give the ones who really need straw assistance reusable/washable water containers with the straws built inside.
