Plastic straws are quickly becoming a dining taboo:

2018 was full of debate about plastic straws as an environmental issues. In July, Seattle became the first major US city to ban single-use plastic straws and utensils. Corporate bans are also quickly gaining momentum: major companies like Starbucks, Aramark and American Airlines are vowing to stop offering plastic straws.

 

On the other hand, also in Europe, the EU-Parliament has decided by a large majority to ban the sale of disposable plastic products. The prohibition of disposable products such as plastic drinking straws, disposable tableware, cups, cotton swabs, balloons or food packaging made of expanded plastic, will be applied from 2021.
