Using Straws in California Might Lead to Jail Time

When it comes to trash in our oceans, many people think of plastic water bottles or grocery bags. So if you’ve already switched to a reusable water bottle and you bring your own bags to Whole Foods, you’re in the clear right? Wrong. Many other items contribute to the 8 million tons of plastic entering the ocean every year. One of the often overlooked culprits is plastic drinking straws — but California has introduced a law to change that. Think of how often you order a drink at a restaurant. The waiter sets down six glasses of water and with...
