Goodbye plastic! Piñol promotes eco-friendly bamboo straws
The Department of Agriculture is encouraging the public to use bamboo straws as alternative to single-use plastic straws.
Agriculture Secretary Manny Piñol said the department promotes the use of biodegradable materials, including bamboo straws.
“We will be introducing the use of these straws from bamboos which grow wild in Palawan and commonly used as fences to enclose yards,” he said in a Facebook post.
