When in doubt, keep it out

Be one less

Wow! That's a lot of straws, but you can be one less. If we're all one less, that makes a big difference!
You can refuse straws at restaurants and bring your own. There are many types of reusable straws that come with easy to carry tools to keep your straw clean. (You can get one like this at the CRA conference this year!)
