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!
Compatible with your reusable KeepCup coffee mug, this stainless steel straw is also a great way of reducing plastic use and opting for zero waste products instead of wasteful single-use items.
The metal straw can be used for hot or cold drinks such as smoothies or milkshakes. Why not fill your KeepCup with a smoothie in the morning and then rinse it out and grab a coffee to go as an afternoon treat? All without any plastic waste.
It’s official – the humble plastic straw has had its day. Gone are the days of endless plastic straws being added to our drinks in bars and restaurants. The tide is already turning for the lightweight polluter, with many chains and retailers waving goodbye to straws with the aim of reducing plastic waste. Straws may seem innocent enough, but thanks to their low weight and size, they are difficult to filter for recycling and prone to blowing away from landfills and rubbish collection sites, causing them to end up littering our land, beaches and oceans.
But, if you love a quick sip on the go, opt for a reusable, plastic-free straw that you can keep in your bag and use again and again. One of favourite and most simple zero waste products.
Can I reuse the metal straw after I’m done?
Time to get creative! As it’s made from metal, your straw can be recycled if you really don’t want to use it anymore, but with a little imagination, you can easily find an alternative use. How about using it as a pen holder on the side of a notebook? Or as a strawberry core remover in your kitchen?
