It’s not green to use disposable things. For example, the paper cup and the plastic spoon I use for my coffee every morning. Sure. But plastic stirrers are *also* plastic and disposable and not very green. I suppose they’re better than a whole plastic spoon, but it’s still bad for the planet.
It doesn’t make me a better person to use a plastic stirrer than a plastic spoon, because I’m still throwing away non-biodegradable trash, even if it is less.
