Re: Paper or plastic?

What do the cocaine users do if no straws are available? Spoon it in baby, what else, and no I don't carry a stainless straw.

Dude.

Everybody who partied through the eighties knows this.

Roll up a dollar bill when you are with your friends.

A hundred dollar bill when you are trying to pick up a girl.

Re: Paper or plastic?

Well, apparently the problem with all this crap is people bitching that it ends up in the ocean. WELL, since you force us to recycle, and I do it with pride. I keep the tub on my back porch and rinse and drop all stuff in it easily. So if we have to recycle plastic, how is it ending up dumped in the ocean. Go on a fact finding mission against that, not me actually recycling my plastic/glass/metal.
Oh wait, neighboring communities are actually stopping picking up recycling, too expensive or something.
To sum it up, people that are lazy litterers suck. People that make me suffer because others litter, also suck.
I like straws, heck, I'm ok with paper straws IN restaurants, not in my car. Plus with neck issues, and also elderly people like my dad can't drink from a can without one, I won't call them needed, but highly useful.
And if a community is dumping trash in ocean, DO NOT FINE THEM, that will just cost the taxpayers money. THROW THEM IN JAIL, whoever is responsible.
Punish the criminals, let me suck down my personally created mix of 44 ounces of Diet Dr. Pepper and Diet Ginger Ale (or Diet Coke and Diet Ginger Ale) in peace.
Heck I still have some of those ancient plastic bowls that I had as a kid with the straw in the side so you could drink the milk from your cereal with them. My kids loved them when they were young too.
If you add up all the plastic from every straw I have used in my lifetime, I would bet they use less plastic than the recycling tub I had to replace because the jackass pickup guy broke it.
The problem with stainless straws is having them with you when you need them, plus all the funk growing in them you can't see.

Re: Paper or plastic?

Back in the sixties that's all they used and they worked well. Paper cups and straws. Food tasted better with the paper too. When I want a water, I buy a bottle of water, dump out the water and fill it up at the nearest sink with fresh cold tap water. I think fresh tap water is better for you then water sitting in a plastic bottle for the last 6-9 months..

I tend to agree. But I think that is age and locality dependent. We have great water in this area (opinion, and I have read it somewhere...) . Others vary a good bit, but I don't know if you get used to it or what, but I prefer PA water over other places. Must be that tree extra bark and deer pee filtered through old coal mines running down to the local sources.

Re: Paper or plastic?

I know that disposable plastics suck, but this is one area they need to rethink.
They outlawed plastic straws here too and I do enjoy the occasional Slurpee. I just take a second paper straw when I get my drink and one the first one fails, as they surely do, I just switch to the new straw. Never had a Slurpee long enough to have a second straw fail.

If you can't get the red plastic Superstraw, you may need a third or fourth paper straw.

Gotta get your $1.99 worth.

My dentist recommends drinking tap water. There's flouride in it, but not in bottled water.

Re: Paper or plastic?

How many pounds of straws equal all the plastic used in an automobile?

What about plastic cups?

What about all the cement piping put underground to help direct water which drains out miles of environment resulting in future droughts?

Humans aren't meant to do everything we do.
