One small way to limit the waste of disposable plastic straws is to stop using them! Like all other plastic, much of it ends up in the oceans, where it breaks down into microscopic pellets that frequently ends up in sea life. That's what we call No Good.
So, in order to help cut down on this travesty, you can get a free reusable straw made out of … paper? How are we supposed to clean a paper straw? Heck, wouldn't our beverages themselves ruin a paper straw? Am I insane?
Oh, it's made out of metal. That makes so much more sense.
