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.

Starbucks Being Held Hostage By SJW’s

Couldn’t happen to a nicer bunch. I stopped frequenting Starbucks years ago because their coffee sucks, though I do like a few of their pastries. Now it’s on my boycott list because their head man Howard Schultz is an avowed leftist who was quoted as saying “we don’t want your business” to conservatives, as well as the fact that the company has become overly PC and is now being brow-beaten by its very own leftist customers. I love it when leftists turn on each other. The company is even closing its stores on May 29 for “racial bias education day”, whatever that is. Sounds like brain-washing. What’s next, free coffee for all of those claiming to be “woke”? What a joke this company is.
