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, opt for a metal straw that works independently or as part of the KeepCup system. The metal plastic free straw can be used for hot or cold drinks as part of a plastic free life and fits perfectly into the drinking hole on your KeepCup. Great for smoothies and shakes.
Keep your plastic free straw clean and ready for use with this simple brush cleaner that fits easily through the stainless steel straw. A useful accessory if you’re interested in the zero waste concept.
