“All Right, That’s The Last Straw,” Says Greta Thunberg to Woman Enjoying Milkshake
Seventeen-year-old Swedish environmental activist, Greta Thunberg, has had it up to here with people’s blatant disregard for the planet on which we live. The “here” we speak of is, of course, the 8.5” tall straw you’re still using.
“Enough is enough, this is the last straw.”
Both literally and within the context of the common English idiom, Thyurnberg is making her point quite clear.
Plastic straws contribute to the pollution of our world’s oceans endangering sea turtles and many other precious human life, so why are you still using plastic straws?
“I like to drink my drink but only if I can drink my drink from like a little bit away from where the actual drink is. What are a few thousand animal’s lives and the health of the planet to the convenience provided to me by a plastic straw?”
The battle seems to have no end in sight as neither party seemed very interested in what the other had to say. One this is certain however, this is driving Thurnberg up a wall, a rock wall covered in ivy that is.
