Some restaurant chains have replaced their plastic straws with a version that looks/feels/tastes like cardboard because, I'm told, sea turtles end up with those straws in their stomach. Or some such. The inside of these cardboard straws seem to be lined with something that isn't cardboard because, I'm assuming, cardboard itself would otherwise absorb the liquid and start decomposing immediately.

Only, the cardboard straws do start to decompose before I can even finish my drink, and I end up with pieces of cardboard and whatever that coating is, in my stomach.

Somehow I'm not thinking this helps me. But then, I'm sure that sort of thinking is wrong, because the goal isn't to help me.
