Why so much concern lately about plastic straws? Is there something unique to straws that makes them worse than other waste?
Just curious. Straws are a minuscule percentage of our waste stream. I was contemplating a Starbucks frappucino - so they get rid of the straw, but what about the cup? Why is the straw the problem?8 AnswersOther - Environment2 years ago
Everyone throws that out there, like it's a given, but I don't see any evidence of it. I'm not saying the government doesn't do it for sure, I'm just looking for evidence. i.e. how many dollars went to which company and when. Be specific. I'm asking about direct subsidies or specific tax breaks that aren't available to other industries.
And I'm not talking about military action in the middle east, either.4 AnswersPolitics8 years ago
