I was sitting in a bar, and I over hear the guy sitting next to me ask the bartender for a straw. The bartender explained that the do not provide straws anymore because they are bad for the environment. And do you know what that guy said?! He said, "f*ck the environment." I was so bummed to hear someone speak like that.
Plastic Straws are a problem because they are difficult to recycle. Since most plastics don’t decompose, or biodegrade, they end up staying in landfills for years. When plastic finds its way to the ocean in small pieces, it can poison animals and hurt the environment.
So please, don't be mean to the mama (EARTH), don't use plastic straws. They are deadly AF.
