But Will Customers Care?

"As for how long the paper straws last after being inserted into liquid, Merran said it depends on the beverage and temperature.
"It should hold for about the time for you to [finish the] drink," he said. "It’s going to become a little soggy, but you can still drink from it. It’s like any alternative. It’s not perfect but it does the trick."
Paper straws are better for the environment, but they will cost you

Hey - somebody check my math - the headline in this article says paper straws will cost ten times plastic but the supplier guy says paper is 2.5 cents each and plastic is one-half cent each. Isn't that five times as much? Not ten times?

Hmmm...looks like you're right to me! You should bug the reporter and see if they'll update the story.
