Despite the fact that in some more “eco” places they have taken initiatives such as putting glass jars to reuse them, they overlook the detail of the straws. It seems that they are a small and insignificant plastic and nobody cares about them while they are still being consumed in large quantities when they would be very easy to avoid.
