NexAngelus405 (6 days ago)
Why don't they make them out of bioplastic? They're biodegradable and decompose within a month.

Who's still throwing trash in the ocean? If you throw it in a trash can it goes to a dump. Why only worry about plastic straws? If they end up in the ocean then so does everything else? Why go after the straws?

Jairo Herrera (7 days ago)
Why won't the caretaker or the family bring in their own straws? That's the solution
Laniekea (7 days ago)
Ok, well the Pacific ocean has a patch of plastic literally the size of Texas floating in it. The disabled will adapt
Laniekea (7 days ago)
Nug tg well of course I can't produce zero waste, but I can produce LESS waste. That's the point
Nug tg (7 days ago)
Laniekea there's also every other type of trash in the ocean. You will adapt to not using anything that gets thrown away... like everything. Good luck producing absolutely zero waste
They could have paper straws. Those are biodegradable depending on the paper. My family has paper straws.
Chell Ray (7 days ago)
did you miss the part about paper straws dissolving in hot drinks? if a disabled person needs to use a straw to drink ANYTHING that's just not practical.
April Rodger (7 days ago)
I have silicone straws.... derp....

There are paper straws that work just as fine but degrade a lot quicker.
Chell Ray (7 days ago)
not in hot drinks fam
Liz Dub (8 days ago)
You can literally buy bamboo or metal straws dafuq or literally save them for later use
Chell Ray (7 days ago)
they're not ideal for the disabled though. did you not even watch the video? metal conducts heat, so in a hot drink they can injure the user, and in a very cold drink it would become painful to use too. bamboo straws are inflexible so people with say, a condition which makes their head tilt in an usual way like a spine deformity wouldn't be able to use it. honestly resuable plastic straws are fine so long as they reuse them. plastic doesnt degrade which is bad for the environment but its good for something that needs to be used frequently. so long as they dont throw them out what's the harm?

bring back cereal straws
Faith Nottage (8 days ago)
Iv seen reusable straws that aren’t paper being advertised that are easy to clean and cary with you. Why do we have to negatively impact the future of our planet for something that has an easy solution? If there wasn’t an alternative, I would understand but for this there is. We all had our part in what was done to the environment so we all must do our part to fix it or at the BARE MINIMUM stop it from getting worse. If you can’t be bothered to buy one than they should only be given in cases where they have a disability, that should still help the issue.

Why not add a small amount of bendy plastic straw around the bamboo and combine them?

Jade Heart (7 days ago)
Misty foot because not everyone is willing to WASH them properly. It's pretty expensive to do and takes a lot of labor (in the case of hospitals or care homes of the such) I hate to say it, but it's just more safer and sanitary to use disposables ones. I'm sorry, but it's true

Ban plastic bottles. They litter the oceans far more.
Masssmartyr (8 days ago)
Maybe they should be band and only prescribed to the disabled so if your not disabled you can risk a fine or imprisonment for illegal straws?

I'll just steal some from food places

UK banned straws and baby wipez
Jade Heart (7 days ago)
Vanessa Haag because they can't break apart or deteriorate as easily as toilet paper can, thus our sewers have been getting really bad clogs because of them
Vanessa Haag (8 days ago)
adib mouhanna baby wipes? Why are baby wipes bad? 🤔
adib mouhanna (8 days ago)
I wish straws never existed
adib mouhanna (8 days ago)
adib mouhanna (4 days ago)
Jade Heart okay
Jade Heart (5 days ago)
adib mouhanna point is, if your going to make a statement like the one you just made, then you should at least offer up a valid and usable solution to the very much real issue
adib mouhanna (5 days ago)
Jade Heart ok i understand
Jade Heart (7 days ago)
adib mouhanna well you basically say that all straws need to die, yet you don't bother with coming up with a better alternative for those who desperately need them

Dear Tomo news..... Please stop uploading so many times a day, that’s why you have 2 mil subs and only 50 views, because people are getting annoyed that your uploading 8 times a day, you can upload once a day
gentblue (6 days ago)
Nonsense! People check which stories are interesting and watch those. Tomonews is a business, employing staff, so need to make some income to keep losses down.
Thomast Tham (7 days ago)
[GD] Dj4dasher and sometimes it's bkantantly sensationalism journalism eg it didn't mention or purposely forgot to mention.. Or stupidly enough NOT to state that these plastic straws are being replaced by paper straws!!..
Jade Heart (7 days ago)
Then eople will start complaining about how they don't post enough. One is NOT enough for a NEWS channel.
Baconsparkelz (8 days ago)
[GD] Dj4dasher they can upload as much as they want, it's their channel.
SnowCYYCling (8 days ago)
People are also complaining about the compilations, preferring single story videos. Can't make everyone happy.

We gotta save the environment
ヅ M I N K * (7 days ago)
Ok I will say it again, *common areas* not care facilities. The problem being address is directed at common areas. Of course care facilities will be the exception to the straw ban because of the environment stipulations.
Jacob Chang (7 days ago)
In addition the straws have to be thrown away at the end anyway to follow health laws.
Jacob Chang (7 days ago)
ヅ M I N K * contamination risk, the large amount of extra funds needed for to clean each straw in an isolated environment I.e no cross contamination between patients. Assurance that one straw isn’t used by multiple patients and so on.
ヅ M I N K * (7 days ago)
Jacob Chang I just said they should have bendable straws built in the cups like sturdy water bottles/canteens available at common areas. If they're getting rid of flimsy bendy straws because of how much people burn through them a day, then why not just give the ones who really need straw assistance reusable/washable water containers with the straws built inside.
