This will examine the recent bans on single use plastic straws. It will display actual laws of specific cities that have made these laws and what the consequences are for establishments that do not abide by the new laws. Pollution statistics will also be displayed to help determine whether a plastic straw ban is enough to make a significant decrease in pollution rates. As these straw bans continue to be more strictly enforced, there will be more straw alternatives. The alternative options will also be examined to determine their practicality and impacts on pollution.
