Disney is a business, not a person. As a business, Disney can have no opinion on any topic, including the importance of being environmentally friendly. The individuals who are responsible for making these decisions at Disney absolutely must consider the business impact of their choices, and no doubt they would not make the environmentally friendly choice unless they also felt it was good for the business, or at worst neutral. So sure, if they can do something that's positive for the environment, reflects well on the brand, AND saves money in the process, that's pretty obviously a win-win. That said, individual employees at Disney almost certainly have varying personal opinions on the environmental importance and value of these measures, just like the individual contributers to this thread. To say that "they're only doing it to save money" seems nonsensical to me. They are doing it because it is good business, but that doesn't imply that nobody in a position of influence at Disney really gives a fig about the environment. Again, I don't think anyone here can claim to know how much the individuals at Disney personally do or do not care about the environment. But just because one business owner is choosing to make an environmentally sound choice strictly for the cost savings, it does not logically follow that the same must be true of ALL business owners. Besides which, IIUC, Disney is not getting rid of straws. They are switching to paper straws. I haven't seen anyone argue that using paper straws is really just a cost saving measure, but perhaps I just missed that thread.
