The Last Straw

February 18 2019

Like many people, I’m loving how many Queenstown establishments are moving away from plastic straws in their drinks. The metal straws are kind of cool but I seriously draw the line at paper straws.

Paper straws suck at being straws, we all know this. How about we just decide to no straws at all, sound good? If you want a straw you ask for one, simple?

    Ever thought about how much bacteria grow inside the metal straws when they don't get cleaned properly between uses? I have. Give me paper straws anytime.
