Plastic straws suck
Plastic straws are a big environmental problem. Thankfully, many restaurant chains are pledging to ban single-use plastic straws completely. But if you do need to use a straw why not try switching to one made of reusable stainless steel or glass? You can then use them as much as you like without having to worry about damaging the environment.
Another simple way to cut down on plastic pollution is to buy your fruit loose, or drink tap water instead of buying it in a plastic bottle.
