Single-use plastics I can’t live without

Plastic Straws

Straws make the world go round. Especially the giant ones. Have you ever tried to drink a milkshake straight from the glass? Near fucking impossible. Actually, come to think of it, have you ever had a milkshake from Five Guys? Besides it being a top 5 fast-food milkshake (I will fight anyone on that), it comes in a plastic cup, not one of those rinky styrofoam cup, which makes the drinking experience all the better. Thick-ass milkshake in a plastic cup, drank out of a plastic straw. What could be better? Fuck paper straws. That shit can’t hold up to soda, could you imagine trying to drink a thick, delicious milky, creamy shake out of one of those pieces of shit? FOH.

Coffee Cups and Lids

God, the only thing I need in the morning besides coffee, is that specific coffee served to me in a portable, on the go, single use, branded cup. How else will everyone know how cool I am if I don’t walk into my meeting with one of these bad boys? Plus, drinking out of a mug is so 1950s. It’s 2021, I’m on the go, I’m on the move. I need a coffee cup I can rip for an hour and a half and then discard

Plastic Utensils

Oh man, honestly, the best part of take out. Besides the gase food, is getting plastic utensils with your meal and being able to throw everything out when you’re done and not worry for one second about having to do the dishes. I mean come on, we all know washing dishes is the LAST thing anyone wants to do after stuffing your face, so thank God just throwing away plastic utensils when you’re done eating turns that nightmare into a dream.

Plastic Bags

Ever need to carry or transport something and then not need to transport it a little later? Well thankfully, we have amazing plastic bags for just that. Load up on groceries, fill up that bag at the liquor store, and then immediately never think about it again as soon as you get home. Repeat that cycle daily and you’ve mastered the art of the single-use plastic bag.
