BURLINGTON, Vt. (WCAX) St. Albans may be joining other local communities banning plastic straws. Students at St. Albans City School presented a proposal to the City Council Monday night.

Students say it started as a class project that transformed into 200 people signing a petition.

The students say they know some straws are necessary but they want other options considered, like bamboo and metal.

The City Council says it will discuss the issue.
