Straws, Richard Yes Don, California discussed on Mark and Melynda
Santa Barbara California city council now says any restaurant or bar that gets. Caught using plastic straws could be facing time. Behind bars I times warning second time they, catch you that's a fine not to exceed thousand dollars and it's hard to read this with, a straight face and up to six months in jail. And it's not going to go on your record two you have? A. Criminal, record now. For. For using or distributing straws yes oh my goodness absolutely we're not the. Only ones that thinks it's. Ridiculous instead of banning anything this? Is coming from texter why not find out what point the, straw is jumping out of the trash into. The ocean and maybe we'll start with a fixed there Also had someone else says my wife. And I are always picking up trash it's, not the plastics fault it's the people that the role of the plastic on the grounds fault. And someone else trying to figure out how the plastics. Draws our oceans they're coming from ships legally dumping their garbage out? From. The, restaurants who. Have. Their stuff dumped into landfills that second one sounds like the gun debate. Right what's not the gun. It's the person exactly yeah exactly? And that's true yeah hell about round rock can kill a, welcome aboard how are you Kelly good afternoon Hey kelly I'm Turn your strain are on. Here I. I hate the plastic I think I think. It should have never been invented it's. It's just not any good Anyone Especially how it ends up in our oceans than you and you're. Right it's not the. Plastic it's the, people but we can't take the. People Just to go after the plastic Why, why not just making, the plastic, and then you know I mean I don't know That was Mark suggestion if we're serious go, after the plastic manufacturers, yeah just go back. To prohibition, of the nineteen twenties with alcohol try it with plastic. See how, it works. I mean that may not be, putting people out of, work too, you know there's It, is but I just I just don't think there's any. Need for, plastic Drinking I like we had the one holler that suggests that if you have the. Option so if you win wherever you got your star phone cop and plastic, straw if you've gone yet and they had another option that was better for the environment, you you would choose that if that's the way you feel right And that's a great idea Melinda Exactly I can't take the credit that came, from one of the other. Listeners Yeah I mean you know maybe give us a choice you know It's a. Matter of. Conscious I mean. People just need to get a grip all. Right thanks very much one of the texters raised a point though this could be coming from ships crossing the, ocean or big barges that are hauling trash. Produced in other countries and it somehow ends up in? The oceans have they determined definitively that straws from you as restaurants are the ones? Ending up in the ocean, and causing the problems for marine life I'm going to say no that they. Don't have one hundred percent proof that that's where it's coming from I think they're just. Trying to do what what they feel is right for the environment and this is a way to to strike. Out just like they did with the plastic bags here. In Austin Jim is? On? I. Thirty five, at two, thirty five how are you. Today Jim Not just California exclusive I just recently went to Key West Florida and they're. Doing the same thing they're actually use the straws the. Guy say talk about? Yes After a short time at the. Whole drink they start dissolving. They're not work, while the, damn Doro Sarah shake I love Scott and they're saying because of the bottom feeders the sea lies like a platypus sea turtles and stingrays that, they found that. The worst of getting up straws Livestream so that's all raise some people cannot live without their chocolate shakes Yeah well that's interesting what's happening? Down there. In key west now.

It better The beaches are quite as fantastic but it's. Comparable far as all the luxuries of the United States but you feel like you're on top of the island has what, I was gonna say the beaches aren't quite as comparable but if you don't want to leave. The, United States. As, as, close as you. Can get okay sounds good, hey, Jim, thanks, very, much you take care. Five one two eight. Three six zero tax real quick that made? Me laugh absolutely People, now, meeting, under, the boardwalk in the. Back alleys buying plastic.

Short amount of time now talking about putting people in jail for putting. A plastic. Straw in somebody's iced. Tea at a restaurant yeah that that's just how ridiculous this is I, think again it was okay. For Starbucks to say you know what as a company. We have chosen to? Take, this route and that's what we're gonna do I know other companies have started. To fall in with that as well that's perfect that was their decision but. When, you say.
