New York City says goodbye to plastic drinking straws

During a conference in Manhattan, a member of the New York City Council, Rafael Espinal, announced a bill aimed at banning plastic drinking straws.
According to the National Park Service, more than 500 million straws per day are consumed in the United States! Many restaurants in New York have already joined the Give a sip campaign, promoted by the Wildlife Conservation Society, and are committed to using straws made of alternative materials to plastics, such as bamboo or paper.
New York, forse, metterà al bando le cannucce di plastica

According to the Guardian, the bill provides fines of 100 to 400 dollars for the premises surprised to distribute plastic straws, but will admit exceptions for disabled or sick people who, for drinking, need a straw.
