  20. Shannon Connolly says:

    We always used straws in restaurants simply because they were provided. We never use them at home. So, we’ve given it up. I do have a supply of steel straws I carry with me in case someone really wants one while we’re out. We also gently suggest to the wait staff to ask before providing straws.

    Bringing my own reusable bags
