I was looking around Google News when I spotted an article on NZH regarding Countdown removing plastic straws from the shelf (URL)
While I can understand "all the plastic hate" at the moment, I had to ask myself - where do the straws end up when they are removed from the shelf? Does the company take them back and remanufacture them into something else, does Countdown put them into the bin or something else.
I also had to ask myself - if I need a straw - what are my options now?
Do Countdown sell other types of straws, or do I have to go find a supermarket that still stocks plastic one?
