Jeff Landry makes great point about plastic straws
I really am tired of the stupidity! We are served useless paper straws in plastic cups! If we are looking to conserve plastic can we at least have paper cups and bring the plastic straws back! #bringbackplasticstraws

Plastic straw = 0.42 grams. Plastic cup averages between 350 and 480 grams.

Shows the stupidity of liberal ideas they ban a much smaller straw than the cup and paper straws suck

It’s not about the weight. They want to ban straws because they say wildlife are ingesting the long, narrow straws.

Plastic is among the world's most recyclable materials.

Yes. A few years ago, the story and photo of a sea turtle with a straw stuck in his nose made global headlines.

Polar bears now float on mini islands of plastic straws as the ice pack has thawed and left them stranded!

Because Landry is saying this, I will reflexively take the counter argument......only because it's Jeff Landy

re: Jeff Landry makes great point about plastic straws
I've never seen anyone set this out, but I'd like to see a visual illustration of how much compacted landfill space every plastic straw ever produced would take up. I have to think it is all but completely negligible and insignificant in the grand scheme of everything.

But, then, there's this point.

It's a lose/lose.

By their logic, plastic can be ingested by animals. Paper causes them to have to cut down more trees.

They'd rather the population be happily drinking our own piss from broken Mason jars.

Ever notice that the “sacrifices” leftists want are so minuscule? Their “sacrifices” are always convenient and minimally disruptive.

No one can call themselves “environmentally concerned” and still have HVAC in my view. It’s one of the largest consumers of energy, and for the most part—optional. Yet... you never hear of “HVAC shaming”. Just don’t use a straw.

More evidence being “green” is more about imposing power on others and virtue signaling than anything.

re: Jeff Landry makes great point about plastic straws
shite is so dumb. Burger restaurant in Des Moines, IA , switched to serving their milkshakes with paper straws and it was disgusting. Started to breakdown less than 1/3rd of the way through and was undrinkable.

If a straw from the middle of Iowa found its way to any ocean, we’d have much bigger issues with sanitation and infrastructure to worry about.

Liberals just love activating around “causes” that make themselves feel good because they “did something”

I thought the same thing earlier this week when I was given a prepared box lunch that had a wooden fork, a wooden spoon, and a wooden knife.

These environmental wackos need to pick a boogeyman, and stick with it.
