Use of Plastic Drinking Straws.

  BT 17:49 25 Jun 2019

No doubt most of you will have been aware of the campaign to eliminate the use of single use plastic including Drinking Straws.

Now for various reasons my Wife finds it easier to drink certain things with a straw and as her supply is getting low she asked me to get some from Tesco with the weekly online order.

This is what I found Paper Straws £2.00 for 80 -- Plastic Straws 35p for 120. So paper straws are around 10 times the price of plastic ones. Hardly an incentive to make the change (unless you are rich)

martd7, take your own (reusable) straw. Problem solved.

I can never get round the idea of a McD milkshake as a drink. I've never had one but from what I've seen they are very thick, more like a semi melted icecream.

Final Update

As it turned out Tesco's Plastic straws were unavailable when I ordered them so ended up with some Stainless Steel ones from Amazon. £2.99 for 8, 4 straight, 4 bent, 2 cleaning brushes, 8 silicone mouthpieces and a storage pouch. Probably last me out!
