Replace plastic straws with eco-friendly paper straws

I applaud Sheraton Maui, Tetsuji Yamazaki, Plastic Coalition, Katelyn Mayer, Surfrider Foundation and especially Maui Time where I read about this “ingenious” idea of getting rid of plastic straws. Replacing them with innocent paper straws is the way to go. Paper straws are one of the most eco-friendly ideas I’d love to see happen!

Please spread the word. So far I’ve been to four restaurant establishments and when I asked for a paper straw all I got were a lot of blank stares.

Let’s keep Maui no ka oi. Hey, maybe the paper straws could be edible!
