Journalist request - are you in support of the plastic straw ban?

Sam_ScopeSam_Scope Member Posts: 7,732 Disability Gamechanger
A journalist has been in touch and is looking for someone to share their story, they are looking for someone who uses straws daily and would class themselves as reliant on them who is in support of the ban (though with caveats for disabled people) and who thinks it is a positive thing?

If you are interested then email us on [email protected] and we can explain more.

    I'm not dependent on straws but i'd like to say that things that are considered luxuries for able bodied people should not be considered luxuries for disabled people when they are necessities and society needs to learn the difference.
