Sorry to say it, but we are not the biggest fans of paper, bamboo and wheat straws. They just don’t feel right, they taste a bit funny and they don’t look like what we are used to, but that being said we would not use a plastic straw again and think a little less of bars that still serve with plastic.
When we are forced to use a recyclable straw it makes no difference to our night. The interesting part is when we do not have the option and a bartender just puts a plastic straw in our drink it might change our attitude. Sorry to say it, but if you own a bar in 2019 that just adds a plastic straw without asking, you will be frowned upon.
We feel that in 2019 it is socially unacceptable to use a plastic straw when there are so many other options.
We had this problem in a bar the other day when they offered us plastic or paper. We wanted to say plastic, but we chose paper. Why? because we’re not selfish. We just need to toughen up and get used to something new. In a years time we will be so used to the change and may have saved a turtle.
