Thanks, Kirsten. You are right. Gramma had to have a straw when she broke her back. Thankfully, many companies are working on a biodegradable plastics, (bio-plastics) and flexible, but stronger paper straws. We should pressure more for this.

I applaud, and thank you, for any effort. To my mind, this is a mental and awareness matter, and we must be creative and mindful to make progress.
