A few States have passed legislation making the use of plastic straws illegal. Of course, all of us in other States laughed at them, posted memes and such on FB and just considered them crazy. While I'm not for laws, I am for creating awareness.
We already sell stainless steel double and triple insulated cups which, of course, cuts down on the number of plastic and Styrofoam that is used but we are going to do one better. Beginning March 1, 2019, we will include a free stainless steel straw with a cloth case to carry it in so it doesn't get dirty with every cup/tumbler/mug we sell. Yes, you heard that right - it's FREE and it's our way of trying to create awareness about not only our oceans and waterways but about our landfills and general environment.
