    Starbucks Sippy Cups Will Replace Plastic Straws by 2020

    They actually describe it as an "adult sippy cup."

    Already in use at more than 8,000 Starbucks stores, these lids look exactly like the tops to adult sippy cups, and, curiously are also made of plastic. Still, environmentalists seem to be supporting Starbucks’ move.

    Also notice it doesn't really save anything. It moves from a plastic straw to a slightly larger plastic lid to accomodate the extra opening for the sippy cup feature. And enviro-mental-ists are OK with it, probably because, a) they aren't really serious about "saving" anything, it's all about being "better" than somebody else; and/or, b) they aren't bright enough to realize it's the exact same thing in another shape.

    And now they're adding "alternative material" straws that will be made of paper, themselves requiring trees to be chopped down to make them. Enviro-mental-ists are against chopping down trees except when it serves their feel-good ideas. Or when they need something made of chopped-down-tree material, like Ikea pressed-wood furniture or toilet paper.

    But that's all OK. Because:

    Per a release, Starbucks also says it’s still working on a fully recyclable and compostable hot cup.

    I have faith they will introduce new ways to create the same problems they claim they're trying to fix. Plus it will likely add new health risks to the containers, which happens an awful lot when the eggheads decide to "save the environment" using products and tricks that are ultimately worse for people than what they replaced.
