Seattle plastic straw ban goes into effect in effort to reduce marine pollution

SEATTLE - Looking for a plastic straw to sip your soda? It's no longer allowed in Seattle bars and restaurants. Neither are plastic utensils in the latest push to reduce waste and prevent marine plastic pollution. Businesses that sell food or drinks won't be allowed to offer the plastic items under a rule that went into effect Sunday.
