Re: “Strawless Summer challenges Charleston bars and restaurants to give up plastic straws

I try to avoid straws in general, and lately, whenever I use them I put a 'knot' in them and bend them, thinking the big chunk in the middle, and bent and less stiff, will keep them from doing more damage than necessary (just like slicing the plastic holders of a six pack of cans, same concept).

I'd like to mention a few things though. First of all, why can't this county recycle straws? That's almost insulting. Straws are plastic. Other plastics work why doesn't that one?

Second of all, none of this would be a problem had we just kept with paper straws like in the good old days. I prefer them anyways. Why the heck do we not use them anymore in favor of plastic ones? I get if they're in a drink for 1 hour they might get soggy, but in general they hold throughout the drink, and most people won't re-use them anyways, that's why they get thrown away. I really don't get the point of that.
