    Yeah I've seen a whole truckload of plastic bags burnt in Indonesia. Great for the atmosphere- NOT.
    Enjoy the whisky while you have lungs that can breathe.

    If you're ecologically and sustainably minded, it's the difference in saving trees or saving water... not to mention saving plastic/styrene.

    I save plastic straws to throw at turtles.

    Paper plates generally have coatings on them, top and bottom, that are comprised of alpha methyl styrene, ethyl and butyl acrylates, paraffin, polyethylene and carnauba waxes... all FDA compliant for direct food contact, of course... but not readily biodegradable.
