The current run of disposable plastic drinking straws is bad for the usual eco reasons, but the alternatives aren't so great for other reasons:
- Ryegrass straws tend to turn to mush in your drink and make everything taste like grass.
- Paper straws are reportedly making everything taste like paper.
Looks like whatever the alternative will be it'll have to be low cost, durable, eco friendly and not leave an aftertaste.
@polychrome I was reading the other day that non plastic bags often take more resources than plastic, wouldn't be surprised if this is also the case for non plastic straws
