The Best Reusable Straws Because It's Time to Ditch the Plastic Ones

Disney plans to eliminate plastic straws and stirrers from all parks here’s when the change will

However, the City says it won't actually punish anyone that severely if they break the rule. When Rowse suggested letting people respond to the alleged environmental threat of plastic straws as they see fit, Councilman Jason Dominguez unfurled his totalitarian colors, declaring that "we can't always count on common sense", and therefore, "we have to regulate every aspect of people's lives".

It's time to ditch the use of unnecessary plastic and taking the stand to ditch the plastic straw is a great start.

Providers would also be allowed to provide, or sell, a plastic straw, stirrer, or cutlery to those with a mental or physical disability.

Santa Barbara, California has become the first city in the United States to impose a possible jail sentence for those defying the municipality's plastic straw ban; giving the green light to fine and imprison repeated offenders.

"There was a time when there were no plastic straws, only paper".

The prosecutor accused the Portugal forward of having used shell companies outside Spain to hide income made from image rights. Further reports indicate the deal involved Ronaldo avoiding jail if he pleaded guilty to the tax fraud charges.

Most supporters of the plastic-straw ban believe that the straws are a significant contributor to the problem of plastic pollution of the world's oceans.

To justify the ban, the ordinance cites Santa Barbara's "clean and healthy environment", the burden on landfills and the potential danger to both "local wildlife habitat" and the "marine environment". At the rate we're using straws, there is estimated to be more plastic in the ocean than fish by 2050, according to a report by the Ellen Macarthur Foundation.

Santa Barbara officials have made a similar argument. The same goes for all the juices, soft drinks and other beverages contained in plastic that they continue to consume - not to mention scores of other plastic products they purchase across industries.

This announcement comes shortly after Starbucks and other companies announced their plans to phase out single-use plastic straws.

What's happening in San Francisco? The loss of plastic bags, plastic bottles, and stirrers is something that most people will be able to get around and learn how to adjust.
