Slurping up smoothies, sodas and slushies through disposable plastic straws could one day become a thing of the past.
The call to toss plastic straws out of our food system is growing louder and louder. On Thursday Bon Appétit, a large food service company, announced it is banning plastic straws in all 1,000 of its cafes in 33 states, including locations like AT&T Park, home of the San Francisco Giants. The company says it plans to complete its transition to paper straws by September 2019.
It's the latest salvo in a growing war against straws.
