What's wrong with going back to bio-degradable, wax coated paper straws?
Those would always get soggy, seal up and tear. Bamboo straws are a better alternative.

Not a lot of recycling actually done these days. The US started selling recyclables to China years ago. We shipped our recyclables to them until they decided they were too dirty for their processors. They haven't accepted shipments of US recyclables for more than a year, and most of the Oregon's recyclables are going straight to landfill. Of course you'll have to dig to uncover this lil' secret....I doubt real recycling will return until after an electromagnetic pulse or some natural event wipes out digital info and we're back to pencils and paper.

In any case, we are obviously going to have to come up with a plan. And so is China and Thailand. All that tsunami plastic garbage was unreal.

Legislating our way to profits, ya?
We are a privately held company...
THEY'RE SAFE AND FDA FOOD GRADE COMPLIANT
THEY'RE FRIENDLY TO OUR ENVIRONMENT
THEY'RE 100% MADE IN THE USA
THEY COME IN AN ASSORTMENT OF SIZES TO REPLACE YOUR CURRENT PLASTIC STRAWS
Can someone help me understand the logic in this?

milkshakes, slurpees, frozen smoothies, adult drinks like daquris, etc, all need a straw, unless:
1) You actually desire to tilt the glass up and get a face full of frozen whatever.
2) You wait for it to thaw out completely to a liquid then quaff it down (then what was the point of serving it frozen?).
Use spoons? hmmm....well, I guess one could use wooden ones.
As for the sippy cup thing with Starbucks: yah - idiots.

The best paper straws were Pixy Stix.
