Do you like coconuts and want to take care of the environment? Ask for a biodegradable straw


Mazatlan, Sinaloa.- Visiting Mazatlan and not cooling off with a rich ice cream coconut is one of the greatest pleasures of life, however, that taste could have a great impact on the environment.

The Operadora y Administradora de Playas has detected that one of the materials with the most presence on the beaches is the straw, especially in areas of the port where stalls are located with the sale of the fruit, so it is thought to take measures in this regard and This was reported by the director of the instance, Rogelio Olivas Osuna.

“Yes, in fact, we have to talk about everything with service providers, as well as hotels that are already using a straw, all those new straws that are biodegradable and are in favor of the environment.”

Although no specific alternative has been proposed with the coconut palms of Mazatlán, they estimate the application of measures such as the use of aluminum straws or avocado seed or other materials that are friendly to the environment through their early degradation.

This, however, would represent an expense for the merchants so that a project would be raised before instances such as the Ministry of Tourism or Economic Development to support by means of a stimulus the care of the environment.
