Paper and Plastic

Paper straw

Saving our ocean.

Plastic lid,

Plastic cup,

Items environmentally

Not compatible.

I went to lunch at a fast food place today, which I rarely do as I don’t like fast food but my companions chose our lunch place so I went with it.

I asked for a cup of water to drink and was served it in a plastic cup with plastic lid.

I asked for a straw and was given a paper wrapped paper straw.

 

I really dislike paper straws, they taste awful to me, however I can support their use in an attempt to save the environment, however I do not understand the purpose of providing paper straws in plastic cups with plastic lids, if seems to defeat the whole purpose.

One thought on “Paper and Plastic

  1. It really doesn’t make any sense to make the largest items from plastic and the smallest from paper. Should be the other way around. When I was a kid, my mother had glass straws. They had tiny spoons at the end to eat the ice cream from an ice cream soda. They were great, but you wouldn’t want to carry one around in your purse to take to a restaurant. 🙂
