Why we can't ban plastic straws completely MORE:

What I'm seeing as I'm reading pieces by those with disabilities is a simple, reasonable request. Please don't do away completely with plastic straws. There are many people who rely on them, and they should be made available to them. The goal should not be the perfect elimination of plastic straws where none are ever manufactured or used. The goal should be for those who don't need a plastic straw to not be given them or ask for them, and those who need them — whether permanently or temporarily — to have easy access to them. I think we should all be good with that, although people with disabilities don't need the approval of others for them to have the right to be as independent as possible.
