Disney Parks to Ban Straws

If Disney was serious, they would do what other theme parks do. Sell a refillable container that comes with a reusable straw.

Heck, Universal offers Coca-Cola products. They have Freestyle Machines that have a barcode/RFID reader. If the cup is valid that day, the machine will allow the drink products to be dispensed in a self service fashion. If you try any other cup, the machine won't dispense.

Other parks do similar things.

But this way, no trash, no flimsy lids, no paper cups and no disposable straws to deal with.
Exactly do what Knotts does and offer a year round refillable cup and stations to refill it. What's Disney afraid of? Some APer drinking more than his $50 allotment of coke? It costs Disney like a couple of cents to fill it.

It doesn't matter what it costs Disney to fill it. What matters is how much they'd be giving up of what you're spending now.

I get that sometimes it has to be forced steps to change the way people do things. Once you change peoples habits in a good direction it should be beneficial. It is not just changing the consumer habit, it is also changing the way the Garbage and Recycling industry can make money. Our own waste industry didn't go out and by the latest plastic smelting furnace you can get from Sweden that breaks down plastic to the oil again, no they just paid pennies on the dollar for China and other third world countries to take the recycling as waste. Many people have begun to recycle properly and many business encourage recycling and composting, but in the end did waste management do what was right for the environment or their bottom line.
