It may take you a hundred tries to remember to ask the barman for “no straw please!” but carrying our stainless steel straw is a great way to reduce the plastic polution in our oceans!
As part of a plastic free life, polluting plastic straws are often one of the first and easiest things to say no to. The zero waste concept focuses on reducing unnecessary waste products and reducing plastic pile up in our landfills. Straws may seem innocent enough, but these lightweight polluters are actually one of the worst offenders when it comes to ocean litter and unnecessary, single-use plastics. Opt for a plastic free straw to reduce your plastic footprint.
Thanks to their lightweight structure and shape, straws can easily be missed when filtering for recycling and can blow away from landfills and rubbish tips, ending up as litter or ocean plastic. Thanks to their bright colours and shape, fish are also prone to mistaking floating straws for food or fish, causing problems for their digestion and health.
If you can’t live without a quick sip on the go, slip this stainless steel straw and cleaner in your bag and keep reusing it again and again. They can be used for hot or cold drinks as part of a plastic free life and the width makes them great for smoothies and shakes. It’s a generous 28cm so will reach into most cups and bottles. Keep your straw clean and ready for the next use with the brush cleaner straight after use. A useful accessory if you’re interested in the zero waste concept, and a great conversation starter if you fancy your server..
