An interesting utensil found at Ted's Montana Grill, while visiting Denver, Colorado, was these cardboard straws. An easily disposable straw? I didn't even think about straws not being biodegradable and how truly wasteful plastic straws are to our environment. I mean just think, every time you go to a restaurant you're probably going to use one. As for the green product functionality there is a interesting feel to the lips when you first use one. It does not get cold like a plastic straw and it has a better chance of sticking to wet lips but those are just small sacrifices to upgrading to green design. Earth friendly is always the way to go. I can't wait to find these in the grocery stores and in more restaurants, until then I'm going to make an effort to skip drinking out of straws, what wrong with drinking out from the glass anyway?
