Seattle Bans Plastic Straws

Seattle has become one of the largest cities yet to ban plastic straws out of concerns about needless waste and threat to wildlife. The ban, which took effect Sunday, comes as other cities are weighing bans, including its large neighbor to the south, Portland, Oregon.  New York City has had a proposal to ban plastic straws along with coastal communities like Malibu, Calif.
