i cant believe people are getting called out for using plastic straws when corporations have been knowingly fighting the development of alternative plastic-esque materials for decades

the individualization of responsibility is a hell of a drug

@nickibrill
Not to mention that straws are necessary for people with limited mobility and the cardboard straws are hell for people with sensory issues

Our family has metal straws. It's weird when drinking really cold things as the metal becomes very cold.

@Patrickme
They makes sense. Have you ever used it for a hot drink?

@nickibrill

To some extent I'm not responsible

In the plastic straw instance: plastic straws. Wtf? Not my deal.

Other places, I am responsible:
how I am a person in my community, what values do I hold inside and etc, how close to making a low impact life can I realistically do
