Makes sense - same timeline since


I've spent more than a couple days in CA. Agree with you they'll go away entirely at some point, but looks like the norm pretty much everywhere but CA and HI for now.

FWIW, our city (I live in FL) banned restaurant plastic straws last year. This year you can get one if you request it, but in 2020 they're gone. The default right now is you get one at drive-throughs, but I saw Starbucks introduced a straw-less lid recently, so I assume other drive-through joints will have something similar next year.

We would have banned Styrofoam, but there's a state law prohibiting municipalities from regulating food-related bags and containers. The same law would cover disposable grocery bags. It was passed almost a decade ago, so I doubt anything will happen any time soon.
