Plastic Straw Bans Disregard People with Disabilities

Brian Green, director of Technology Ethics, quoted in The Mercury News.

“Most environmentally-conscious people who are trying to get rid of straws, I don’t think they would have any malice against disabled people,” Green said. “It’s just that they probably haven’t even considered it.”
