They don't need to do away with straws, they just need to make them out of environmentally friendly materials.
When I was a kid we didn't see many plastic straws. Even at the soda counter we used paper straws.
Pretty much everything came in paper or glass back then. The paper containers were waxed so they'd hold up to moisture.
I'm sure someone will come up with a better material to use. We've just gotten hooked on plastics. We need to break that addiction.

It sounds a whole lot better than plastic.

Why is silicone better than plastic?
While not a “100% natural” material like rubber, food-grade silicone is a non-toxic polymer mostly made from silica (sand). It can withstand heating and freezing without leaching or off-gassing, hazardous chemicals – unlike plastics, which contaminate food in these environments.Jun 18, 2015

I'm not sure about silicone and the environment, though.
I know it's toxic when it leaks into the body from breast implants.

I spoke with an agency that helps people they recommended silicone or stainless steal lunch and food storage containers . Non PBA containers are still unhealthy.
My son’s teacher did not like glass containers. They actually have not broken. She worried they would.
Why not make silicone or paper straws. I make daily thick smoothies. We use straws. In the warm weather I add more frozen organic food. You need a straw.
