ICYMI, there’s been a lot of chatter around plastic straws recently because 91% of the plastic we use isn’t recycled and ends up in landfills or oceans. The concern over single-use plastics is so bad that many businesses and cities have begun banning plastic straws outright.
There are lot of things you can do to stop being wasteful at home — like use plastic bag alternatives and find sustainable alternatives to paper towels — but thinking about the way we consume products outside of the home is really important, too.
Many coffee shops have started offering biodegradable straws, which is an impactful step, but they pretty much disintegrate in an iced coffee within a few moments. Many of us could choose to just go without a straw, but sometimes it’s a necessary part of the experience ― including for some people with disabilities. What’s the middle ground?
