Hangzhou Daily Several popular milk tea shops in the main urban area of Hangzhou have adopted paper straws instead of disposable plastic straws in response to China’s “plastic limit” policy since the first day of January. However, the new straw causes quite some complaints from customers. The hashtag #Reasons why you hate paper straw# has even been on the trending list of Weibo. From the customers’ feedback we’ve included four major shortages of paper straws: get softened too soon, have a strange smell, not sharp enough to pierce through the seal, and too difficult to suck the “pearls” up.
