Whenever you order a drink, be proactive and say, "Hold the straw, please" and encourage your friends and family to do the same.  

If you are drinking on the go, bring your own reusable container so you can hold the cup, the lid, AND the straw!

If you prefer to drink with a straw, always carry your own reusable straw. Here are some great options for reusable straws.
