Miles Rose of the Earth911 team found a New York juice shop offering metal straws instead of plastic. Good idea?

now wait a minute, after we stop using straws and plastic lids, then there will only be more of other small proliferating plastic thingies that need to be outlawed.. which wouldn't be bad either, but maybe we could eliminate one step prior to that and get folks to properly dispose of their whatnots in a different manner. I'd have thought everyone was on board for that change.

 

am I wrong?

what's this little 'p' for down here?

Linda,

We're on the same page. Recycling and redesign for less waste need to go hand-in-hand. I don't think outlawing things will be as effective as making things efficient, simple to use, and recyclable. But others may disagree. 

I'm not sure what the P is doing, but it doesn't show up in the posting.

Mitch
