Starbucks Eliminating Plastic Straws is Silly and Will Do Nothing For The Environment

More PC virtue-signaling by a company run by leftists. Plastic in the world’s oceans IS a HUGE problem. Here is an unfortunate fact: 93% of ALL trash that ends up in the ocean comes from just 10 rivers in Africa and Asia.

When we try to tackle environmental problems, let’s take steps that actually accomplish something, like working with third-world nations to deal with their polluting. In many less developed nations rivers are the sewers and trash disposals mechanisms for waste. Simply banning this or that disposable product in the US will do nothing to prevent pollution and the harm it causes to wildlife.
