You may soon only be able to get a straw by asking for it.
Single-use straws are already forbidden to be distributed in the bigger West Coast cities, like Portland, Seattle, & San Francisco. But that’s just the big cities, and only in city limits. You cross into Beaverton? Straws and plastic bags everywhere.
However, it’s headed for a change. The Oregon Senate voted 23-6 to make straw distribution involuntary, statewide. Meaning that if you want a straw anywhere but a drive-thru, you’re gonna have to ask for it.
How do you feel about that? I’m guessing you’re annoyed by that? Why?
