LONG AN PROVINCE, VIETNAM (RECENT - NOVEMBER 14, 2019) (REUTERS) VARIOUS OF GRASS STRAW ENTREPRENEUR, TRAN MINH TIEN, GATHERING GRASS FROM SWAMP TIEN'S HAND PATTING BUNDLE OF GRASS TIEN WALKING AWAY WITH GRASS (SOUNDBITE) (Vietnamese) GRASS STRAW ENTREPRENEUR, TRAN MINH TIEN, SAYING: "I came up with the grass straw as a solution to temporarily replace plastic straws and reduce part of their damage to the environment. However, in the long run, the grass straw does not solve the pollution problem, nor does it have the characteristics required to become the solution to protect the environment (because the grass doesn't grow fast enough)." VARIOUS OF GRASS STRAW MAKER, TRAN THI TUOI, RUBBING GRASS WITH SAND TUOI WASHING GRASS (SOUNDBITE) (Vietnamese) GRASS STRAW ENTREPRENEUR, TRAN MINH TIEN, SAYING: "Right from the beginning, I formed this grass straw idea around the fact that the harvesting can never exceed the nature reproduction rate. That is why until now we always have just four workers at most working at my workshop. We work Mondays to Fridays and rest on weekends, at the same time letting nature have enough time to recover."

REPORTER: "Why?" "Most people, myself included, are so used to using plastic ones because we can bite on them, and they feel better than paper straws or grass straws, even if (we know) using these straws will reduce plastic waste." GRADUATED STUDENT, NGUYEN NGOC SON, SITTING WITH WOMAN AND DRINKING FROM PLASTIC STRAW WOMAN DRINKING FROM PLASTIC STRAW (SOUNDBITE) (Vietnamese) 22-YEAR-OLD GRADUATED STUDENT, NGUYEN NGOC SON, SAYING: "Between single use plastic straws and grass straws, I think we should encourage people to use grass straws, because they're safe to drink from, and also better for our surroundings and environment."
