Planet or People Part 2

Words by Angelica 22 QLD

Do you really need that plastic straw in your drink? Think about the environment!” As Australia rolls out plastic straw bans across the country, very few people have stopped to consider the negative consequences of a plastic straw ban for people with disabilities.

That’s what I’m here to do.

This podcast will resurface the environmental impacts of plastic straws we’re all too familiar with, but it will make you think twice about an outright ban by delving deeper into this issue and the forgotten voices behind it – the disability community.
