    Interesting idea - I'll put some grey cells on it. I agree that carrying around one's own straw is a pain and most guys wouldn't have a place to carry one. I suspect most women don't like putting a wet, drippy thing back in their purse.

    A store just outside of Vancouver does the cheesecake idea already before you get on the ferry.. Frozen cheesecake on a stick dipped in chocolate if you want.

    The ocean is huge :) If their business is doing well, it's just a confirmation that this idea could be great elsewhere too !

    Some ideas in here aren't really "half-baked" but pretty good!

    Except it would need to be called "five hundred-err" LOL. Engineers aren't cheap.

    Nonetheless, like the idea.

    Plastic is a huge problem and it is bankrolled by huge industries, oil namely.

    But yes, the straw thing is ridiculous, there are much bigger plastic related issues to tackle. And then throw in that some of the solutions are worse than the so-called problem. Nonetheless, solutions to problems (real or not) will attract $$.

    My question is how do you know if something has sentimental value to the owner?

    Also, just found a company offering this service and this was on their homepage:

    Death Cleaning Services
    Did something just happen in your home or the home of someone you know? Swift Cleaners is a death cleaning services provider that:

    • Works with homeowner’s insurance to pay for our work
    • Does not charge you or the homeowner any deductible
    • Is open 24/7 and provides instant response
    • Uses hospital-grade disinfectants and provides Certificate of Treatment
    • Uses unmarked vehicles to discreetly respond to your incident
    • Sensitively dialogues with family members or persons involved
    • Has experience cleaning up crime scenes since 2003

    Insurance Coverage
    Death and injury on the property resulting in the need for death cleaning services is covered under most homeowner's insurance policies. It is typically customary for crime scene cleanup companies to waive the deductible for the home owner, so in many cases, the cleanup is essentially "free" to the family involved. Below is a chart that can be used to determine coverage for cleaning up crime scenes:

    HO-1: Named-perils Policy (uncommon, no coverage)
    HO-2: Extended Named-perils Policy (no coverage)
    HO-3: All-perils Policy (most common, structure covered)
    HO-4: Renter's Insurance (coverage for belongings, not structure)
    HO-5: Extended All-perils Policy (structure covered)
    HO-6: Condo Insurance (belongings, walls/ceilings covered)
    HO-7: Mobile Home Insurance (coverage exists, depreciation is a factor)
    HO-8: Old Home Insurance (coverage varies)

    I view this as some thing very different than helping to sell off or dispose of the belongings. I apologize for how this sounds and I'm not being glib, but death can be messy. The services of proper cleaning services may be required.

    Here’s one:

    App for Shopping Trolleys

    An app that lets you unlock and return a shopping trolley without the need for a coins. The app unlocks and takes a small deposit fee for every trolley the user collects

    It can also keep track of all the carts for the supermarket. If the user doesn’t return the trolley back, they wont get their deposit back.

    This can also be implemented in food courts (trays, plates, baskets) so people wont be lazy in returning them.
