No straw, please

The human being has many pending accounts with the environment, since it is the cause of most of the environmental disasters that surround us. An example is the nonsense of the excessive use of single-use plastics that end up in the ocean. But there is hope in 2021 for this problem: Directive 2019/904 of the European Parliament and of the Council, on reducing the impact of certain plastic products on the environment, ends the marketing of single-use plastic products, among them the straws. Does it make sense for a straw to be 5 minutes in your mouth and hundreds of years in the deep sea?
