Starbucks again Becomes the Focus of Debate Because of Plastic Straws or Paper Straws?

Due to the increasing pollution problem, the use of plastics has received widespread attention. The latest debate was transferred to plastic straws. In this regard, environmental organization As You Sow and Starbucks debated.

At present, the paper straws that replace the plastic straws on the market have the problem that the straws are broken when the beverages are not consumed. Beverage companies are unable to provide the perfect solution to this problem. Regarding the use of plastic straws or paper straws, people are arguing over and the debate is escalating.

The headline article "Sipper Wars" of the Wall Street Journal on March 30 details the history of straws and the necessity of use in some cases. In one of his articles, Cara Lombardo quoted a dentist as saying "People should drink all the drinks except mineral water with a straw." Paper straws do not maintain their integrity well when used, especially when used to drink milkshakes. At the same time, paper straws do not perform well as compared to plastic straws. Lombardo wrote in the article that in order to prevent the decomposition of paper straws, people must quickly finish the cocktail.
The Wall Street Journal also reported that some people said that paper straws can last for 10 minutes until they drink zero-degree cola. The daily newspaper also quoted actor Adrian Grenier: “We see pipettes as 'gateway plastics' that understand pollution.”

As You Sow's environmental organization announced at a press conference on March 30 that Granny was elected as the UN's environmental charity ambassador. He spoke on behalf of As You Sow at the Starbucks Shareholders' Meeting on March 21 and asked Starbucks "takes bold action and reduces the global plastic footprint."

The shareholder proposal specifically requires Starbucks to phase out approximately 2 billion plastic straws used each year, which are not recyclable and may endanger marine life. The resolution requires Starbucks to implement a packaging reuse and recycling program that the company developed nine years ago but did not implement.

Conrad MacKerron, senior vice president of As You Sow, commented: “Investors should be concerned about the company’s lack of action. When McDonald's and other competitors make global recycling commitments, Starbucks will lose its main competitive advantage. Starbucks must take seriously the serious environmental damage caused by plastic straws and lids flowing into the waterways around the world. It is the responsibility of people to discard items in the right way, especially disposable plastic straws, lids and cups.

Obviously, paper straws have great environmental advantages. Even if those yellow and grey paper strawsred chevron paper strawsyellow and gray paper straws are thrown into the ocean, paper straws will quickly decompose without leaving any traces, while plastic straws are designed to maintain the strength and durability of the straws.

Gold Metallic Drinking Paper Straws

In the past decade, many environmental organizations have declared war on Starbucks, pointing to Starbucks' latest "shareholder resolution" failed to fulfill its 2008 commitment: by 2015, the cup can be 100% recycled. 25% of the drinks will be served in reusable cups. Place a recycling container in front of all the stores.

In his resolution, Glenel pointed out: "Starbucks has not achieved its goal at all. The company supplies about 4 billion paper cups a year, but these paper cups have a plastic coating that requires special treatment, and the company lacks the basic facilities for recycling paper cups. So most of these paper cups are still disposed of as garbage and are not recycled."

As You Sow also pointed out that even if plastic products degrade, they become small particles. Birds and marine animals will ingest food, leading to disease and even death. Packaging that degrades in waterways can transfer harmful substances to animals, and It is possible to transfer to humans.

Starbucks also responded to these remarks. The company is very concerned about environmental issues and points out that the real problem with plastic pollution is that people deliberately discard valuable plastics rather than using plastic products.
