Infographic About Plastic Straws As An Access Need
In light of the recent controversy around the environmental impact of plastic straws, I want to share this helpful screenreader accessible graphic explaining the importance of plastic straws in meeting the access needs of disabled people. Thank you HIE Help Center for making it.
Note: As a New Yorker, I can attest that I have not seen a governmentally sanctioned straw ban in NYC yet. I have reached out to HIE for clarification about the map.
