I recently read that it takes 200 years for a plastic straw to break down, so – while I don’t use very many straws to begin with – I’ve decided to go without using the lid/straw combo that basically every fast food joint has available.
It really ain’t no thing (we rarely grab fast food, anyway) and straws are just a tiny drop in the bucket of my contribution to landfills – something I kinda care about because I’m one of “those” people. I know.
My husband – bless his heart – thinks that I’m being “over the top” and has jokingly referred to me as Bill Nye on more than one occasion, but it’s like, the joke is on you – that dude is the bomb dot com.
We grabbed Taco Bell the other day because Cheesy Gordita Crunches are a thing I can’t/won’t quit and when I brought my refill of Mountain Dew into the car, my husband was mumbling something about how my “carbon footprint is nothing compared to the sticky footprint you’d leave in here if your pop spills everywhere.”
Naturally, I was all, “WELL MAYBE YOU SHOULD PUT A LID ON IT.”
I wasn’t talking about my soda, FYI. [grimace emoji]
