The best eco-friendly alternatives to plastic straws
It is estimated that more than 500 million single-use plastic straws are used and tossed each and every day. Now I don’t know about you, but that seems a waste for something that the vast majority of us only use for a matter of minutes and frankly, don’t even need.
With that in mind, think about it, do we really need them? Except for people with certain medical needs, nobody actually needs a straw to consume beverages, smoothies, etc. Instead, people have just been conditioned to using them.
For example, have you ever been to a restaurant and the waiter does not bring you a straw with your drink order? The first time it happened you may have been thinking “Where’s my straw”, but after time you realise you don't really need it.
If the convenience of “single-use” is what got you addicted to plastic straws in the first place and you are planning on having a dinner or a party, so you need disposable straws we then we suggest on using our paper straws.
Note that our straws are for one use only. They are designed for brining more life and style to an event. The downside? Paper straws get soft and soggy after sitting in liquid for long periods of time. But if you don’t nurse your drink then you should be just fine.
