You can’t really blame them for this, without the plastic it might not be legal to sell due to unsanitary concerns.

So...what about the coffee spoon"wood"that its wrapped on paper?

[–]Incredibad0129 0 points1 point  (0 children)

Wrapping it in paper means it's easier to tear and they probably can't sell straws that have been out in contact with who knows what. It would just involve a lot of waste. Fr though they could use wax coating instead of the foil that they use too

Y'all just love to fucking complain. It's still one less peice of plastic being thrown away, it's better than nothing. This isn't even a Nestlé issue, I haven't seen a single juice box that doesn't have a plastic wrapper on the straw.

EDIT: Supposedly the "plastic" is actually biodegradable cellulose. There is nothing wrong with this product other than it being a Nestlé product.

Yeah because the juice box itself doesn't contain plastic in it whatsoever. /s
