On Thursday, Disney announced that they will have a ban on plastic straws and stirrers in all of their parks.  It is part of their “long-standing commitment to environmental stewardship.” 

This is a great initiative and other businesses should follow suit. 

Over 500 million straws are used in America every day and many of them end up in the ocean and on our beaches.
