NBC News: Some paper and bamboo straws contain so-called “forever chemicals” that could make them a less-than-ideal alternative to plastic, researchers have found.
Graham Peaslee, who studies PFAS at the University of Notre Dame, says:
“All the straw manufacturers should take warning and say, ‘Hey, do we use this stuff?’ Because at the moment, they’re not even asking that question.”
He went on to say:
“If they come with PFAS on them, they’re not so eco-friendly anymore.”
