In class assignment; April 24

A couple topics that I am interested in is the parking situation because the parking situation here in the city and at school is just horrible. Another topic that I am also very interested is the whole plastic bag and plastic straw situation. I will be talking about the whole debate about banning them in the state of Hawaii or even san francisco. One struggle will for sure be finding a good article about this since its so specific.

Rainsford, Blair. “A Plastic Straw Problem.” Scholastic News — Edition 2, vol. 75, no. 8, May 2019, pp. 1–4. EBSCOhost, search.ebscohost.com/login.aspx?direct=true&AuthType=sso&db=eue&AN=135868995&site=eds-live&scope=site.

In this article, it talks about the problems of plastic straws and some solutions. A lot of these solutions is exactly what San Francisco does. For example, instead of giving a plastic straw, if the customers ask for it, then they will receive it. Another solution is the paper straws and I know here at USF we use plastic straws.

“Some people have an other idea. They say restaurants can stop giving out plastic straws with every order. But they don’t have to get rid of straws completely. If customers ask for a plastic straw, the restaurant can give them one. That means people won’t use as many plastic straws, but the people who need them can still get them. This kind of idea is called a compromise (Rainsford, Blair).”
