  2. I'm sorry but this is SO freaking ridiculous!!! A server will have to watch out for the Straw police or worried that a customer will report the server or the establishment for handing out a straw! And scaring these employees, owners to constantly watch what they do! Aren't plastic straws recyclable? Next they'll tell us how many squares to use from the toilet paper, or only use one tissue a day or month even if you're balling your eyes out or sick with a bad cold!! I need to move to another planet! 😉

  3. This is the most ridiculous, and dumbest,social awareness campaign I ever seen what​ a waste of time.I hope a kid made this idea I would let it go but if you're a adult you need your ass beat big time.

  4. This video begins with a lie. There is absolutely ZERO data to back this claim.
    The 500M straw number came from a 9-yr-old kid who conducted a phone survey in 2011.
    His name is Milo Cress.
    "News outlets writing about this issue (plastic straws)—from CNN to the San Francisco Chronicle—unfailingly state that Americans use 500 million plastic straws a day, many of them ending up in waterways and oceans. The 500 million figure is often attributed to the National Park Service; it in turn got it from the recycling company Eco-Cycle.
    Eco-Cycle is unable to provide any data to back up this number, telling Reason that it was relying on the research of one Milo Cress. Cress—whose Be Straw Free Campaign is hosted on Eco-Cycle's website—tells Reason that he arrived at the 500 million straws a day figure from phone surveys he conducted of straw manufacturers in 2011, when he was just 9 years old."

    Enviro-fools will believe almost any claim, as long as it fits their preconceived notions.

  5. Lost me right at the beginning with "we use 500 million plastic straws per DAY" metric. Highly unlikely. There are only 325 million people in the U.S. So 500 million would be 1.5 plastic straws per DAY or 547 straws per YEAR for every man, woman, child & baby in the U.S.

  6. So what? Plastic is cheaper, more durable and ultimately more green to produce than paper or bamboo straws. We are not helping ourselves or the environment with this feel good politics…
