I think the bags and straws are more of an old-fashioned pollution issue; along the lines of cigarette butts (ubiquitous garbage) or can rings (specifically dangerous to sea life due to shape).

Plus, when intersecting them with the question of recycling, they both are actually quite bad for recycling machines, as they are light enough to gum up the works and stretch and melt into machinery rather than break into chips and proceed along the conveyor.
