The irony of the plastic straw ban
by Adriana Cohen
You know you’re a misguided environmentalist if you support banning plastic straws — the latest enviro craze sweeping the nation — while still consuming trendy Frappuccino-like drinks contained in big ol’ plastic cups.
Cups that also have plastic lids.
Has it ever occurred to enviro “elites,” who never hesitate to ban any product they dislike, that the plastic cups they routinely use will end up in the same landfill or ocean as those plastic straws?
Perhaps the extremist crowd in Santa Barbara, a city that has criminalized the use of plastic straws and will jail and fine offenders, hasn’t noticed that the single-use plastic cups they buy and chuck everyday from their local coffee joint has a significantly bigger plastic load than the little plastic straws and stirrers they want to keep out of the ocean. The same goes for all the juices, soft drinks and other beverages contained in plastic that they continue to consume — not to mention scores of other plastic products they purchase across industries.
