Good information! The only straw I use is one that is built into the cup, and washable/reusable.

Scott Powell I have a friend with no arms and no legs who uses straws for everything. He was onboard with the No-Straw Campaign well before it started gaining such momentum. He used to say how he felt like he was single handedly contributing to the straws in the ocean and switched to a reusable metal straw. We also use paper straws. No plastic straws allowed in this house!
