If you are heading to California for a little trip and are planning on eating out. For the love of god, don’t ask your waiter for a plastic straw.
There’s a new bill proposal that would fine waiters up to $1,000 and six months in jail…
Under the bill, giving unsolicited plastic straws would be a misdemeanour.
The bill will prevent sit-down restaurants from offering their customers unsolicited plastic straws, or from serving drinks with them. However; customers can still ask for straws.
Plastic is a material that lasts forever, yet 33 percent of all plastics are used just once and thrown away,’ ‘Only 9 percent of all plastics are recycled, but due to their small size and lack of a resin code, no straws are ever recycled.’
