Why do people hate straws more than other forms of plastic waste?

User Avatar
Straws are an easy target for environmentalists because they are so prevalent and because they're simple to replace or forgo. Because they're so small and are often made of multiple types of plastic, single-use plastic straws usually can't be recycled. Because of this, it's estimated that Americans alone use upwards of 100 million straws per day (the often-cited figure of 500 million per day has been disputed, but not by much). Activists have found it relatively easy to convince people to decrease their straw use—some restaurants have started asking if customers want a straw with their drink instead of giving them out automatically. Those restaurants have seen a 50 to 80 percent reduction in single-use plastic straws—that's a big result from a pretty simple fix. Not only is it fairly easy to get people to cut down on straw use, but there are also a multitude of more eco-friendly options on the market, like reusable stainless steel straws or biodegradable paper straws. All in all, it's not really about hating the concept of straws or thinking that straws are a worse form of waste than any other single-use plastic item. It's more about the relative ease of convincing people to limit their straw use or switch to alternative types of straws.

Why is it sometimes preferable to use an oil bath instead of a water bath?

User Avatar
Oil baths can be heated hotter (above 100 °C) and will not have the problem of drying out due to evaporation or boiling.

What are advantages of non biodegradable plastics?

User Avatar
Plastics which are non-biodegradable are actually resistant to acidic attack. Volatile materials can also be stored in non-biodegradable containers like plastic. Food stored in plastic containers have longer shelf life as plastics prevent some microorganisms to increase in number. Nylon cords that have been tied to wooden structures like bridges remain intact after a longer period of time, unlike the dried plant fibres used as ropes. Appliances made of plastic materials like PVC can withstand some wear and tear better than wood or cloth materials.

How long does it take for latex to decompose?

User Avatar
Latex is made from the sap of a tree and is therefore a natural substance. It takes about as long for a latex balloon to biodegrade as it does an oak leaf, about 6 months.

The organic waste is biodegradable while plastic is not?

User Avatar
The answer is largely within your question. Organic waste is organic (subject to decomposition by microorganisms), while plastics are not. It is important to note however that there exist now some organic plastics that are biodegradable (consider that Sun Chips bags are now made of biodegradable plastic).

How many kilowatts does the average school use in each day?

User Avatar
The actual answer varies based upon the size of the school and the extent to which they attempt to conserve energy. As a guideline, a 1000 square-foot building uses approximately 1,146 kW per day under the assumption that (on average) 17 kWh of electricity is used per square foot annually. So, that's 1.146 kW per day per square foot of space.
