Taiwan is home to some of the coolest drinks such as fresh fruit juices, soy milk, and smoothies. However, they are having a problem with plastic straws. The straws end up in the waterways, wildlife and mix with Taiwan’s food supply. The country’s most popular export is boba or bubble tea and without a straw, it renders the novelty useless. You need a straw to drink boba. Taiwan plans to have plastic straws and cups banned by 2030. Plastic straws are now outlawed in parts of Florida. Calfornia wants to take the ban statewide. The eyes of the world are looking for a biodegradable-straw solution.
