does nobody else think 20 straws for £1 is stupidly expensive?!

I buy 250 plastic straws for £1.
To get the same same amount of straws in paper it would be £12.50!!!

no thanks!

Plastic bottles are recycleable. Why arnt plastic straws :/
I’ve a better one. Don’t use straws 🌍 saved.

What rubbish, no-one needs a straw.... Sugary drinks rot teeth, kids shouldn't be drinking them enough to rot their teeth.
I remember paper straws from the 70s.

There was a reason they changed to plastic. Something vague like PAPER TURNS TO MUSH WHEN WET !!!!!

Or hard plastic, silicon,glass or stainless steel reusable, which don't need recycling at all. I'm all for plastic straws being removed from the market, the only side effect is people who wouldn't usually buy straws will now buy paper straws, thinking they are saving the planet

My son has said that this happens to him as well when using the paper straws.
Once agan british idiocy and messiah complex kicks in. Paper straws are good if you plan on having your drink for around 3-5 minutes. Sometimes plastic is necessary.

It's not rubbish. My daughter was born with no enamel on certain teeth and she HAS to drink with with a straw. She almost only drinks fresh fruit juices. These contain acid. Dentist told us for her to always use straws.

Why doesn't she drink... water? Trying to minimise contact with the teeth by using a straw also minimises contact with the tongue.

Ice cold. I dont know why the government have now decided to focus on straws in response to plastic pollution in Pacific Ocean but surely a bioplastic straw would be the best solution to this issue in the countries that do dispose of waste irresponsibly.

No it doesn't minimise contact with tongue. You don't use a straw like a tube that goes straight to the back of the throat. She doesn't drink water because she is a teenager. Unfortunately I can't force feed her water so I just sneak some into her fruit juices.
What's the point of paper straws???.... That's like having paper dishcloths!!

My son doesn't have a problem with the enamel on his teeth, however, my dentist said (and I've also seen it mentioned on a few television programmes) to use a straw as well to help to protect the teeth. My son always uses a straw for fizzy drinks and juice (apparently, apple juice is really bad for staining the teeth), but not for milk. I'd also like to add that fizzy drinks are kept to a minimum - one can a week on the night that we have sausage/fish and chips from the chip shop!

Google how much sugar is in fresh fruit (juice).
Google how much sugar is in tap water.
Make an informed decision on what your daughter should drink.
Thank HUKD for saving you money on fruit (juice) and straws (and future obesity related ailments)
Not a fan of mushy paper straws , also I wondered are they banning the tiny straws that come with little cartons of juice . I'd like to see anyone trying to stab those open with a paper straw. There was a phase when my kids were younger for straws that you reused in various shapes , but.they seemed the most unhygienic things imaginable , impossible to clean properly and always had a little bit of water left in the bends .

This proposed plastic straw ban is just fake environmentalism. How many plastic straws are actually likely to enter the waterways? What percentage of single use plastic in the UK is drinking straws? It's just high profile nonsense.

I get it that some people are so stupid that they put cotton ear buds down the loo instead of in the bin and that our antiquated drain systems sometimes allow sewerage to mix with the surface water drain system during heavy flooding, but how exactly do the journo's reporting this imagine all the straws from McDonalds etc end up in the sea, really, how?

Thanks for your concern but this thread is about straws.
I know fruit has natural sugar, would you advise never eating fruit?
I also have no idea why you say to google the amount of sugar in tap water
There is no concern about obesity in my household.

I loved getting a new bendy straw when I was younger! Totally agree they are impossible to clean properly. Hate the taste they would give after you had them a while, eww wouldn't ever buy one again gross but good times

Many reasons!

They're a different type of plastic for one, making them less recyclable.

Their also smaller and more fiddly, making it less worth while per amount of work if you will.

People are also less likely to recycle plastic straws, because they're smaller.

Personally, I wouldn't use a straw at home, but if I was going to have a party or something, I'd rather get like 2 packs of paper rather than plastxlic and have a better environmental impact.

plastic straws with recyclable plastic should be made in my view. Don't understand why it's not been done. Come on straw makers, make them recyclable!

Oh so we suddenly don’t care about dentist hygiene now? What have dentists been saying for years now? Use a staw? I really don’t care what material my staws are made of, but I’m not destroying my dental hygiene over some random guy on the internet.
Knew this would cause arguments when I posted it love it


The paper straws at weatherspoons are horrible. I'd pay £1 for 20 usable friendly straws. But I'm not using paper straws at home they're aweful.

Did you not see not just fizzy drinks pure orange is one of the worse if you take your kids to the dentist you should know this instead you came on with a sarcastic comment and totally missed out not just fizzy drinks.

I didn't miss your comment, and I wasn't being sarcastic, oh and where did I say fizzy drinks????

My kids (teenagers) drink water or diluted squash, and have perfect teeth, thank you, and as you are rudely questioning my dental hygiene, I have never had a filling or any work at all on my teeth.

Buying straws for children is enabling them to drink things which are bad for them, like fizzy drinks or acidic fruit juices whenever they chose. Oh and if you think fruit juice is good for you in the amounts that would necessitate a straw to avoid the acid erosion, I suggest you do a bit of research.

I don't need to as my youngest who is 8 has perfect teeth I have been complimented on my child's teeth. It was the dentist that said always use straws. My child drinks milk more than any other drink.
