What the hell will banning plastic straws do other than make aspects of my life and other people’s lives more inconvenient?
When I go to the grocery store tomorrow, I think I will buy 10 or 12 packs of straws — that should last me about 20 years, which is probably about as long as the plastic will last, anyway. That way, when I swing by for a sweet tea I can actually drink the goddamn thing without spilling it all over myself. Will keep a dozen or so straws in my car in a baggie (also plastic).
The problem with all this is that it is the neoliberal left’s idea of environmentalism — making people’s lives worse so corporations don’t have to take the heat.
