Stainless Steel Straws
Plastic straws are unrecyclable, they are therefore taken to landfill sites, however as they are lightweight the are often blown by the wind or carried by water often ending up in the ocean. Where they endanger wildlife in their current form and eventually breakdown into microplastics which are often mistaken as food by many sea creatures.
So why not make a difference and stop using plastic straws. There are many plastic-free straw alternatives to choose from which are much more eco-friendly. We recommend stainless steel straws as we believe these are the most convenient to use, clean and keep.
These metal reusable drinking straws are safe to use and durable. Most stainless-steel straws come in sets with both bended ended and straight straws for each person’s personal preference. They also normally come with a small cleaning brush and often sold inside a biodegradable cloth bag, which is useful to store them inside.
Stainless steel straws are dishwasher-safe; however, you may want to quickly brush them through with the cleaning stick before placing them in the dishwasher. These straws also look good, and children love them especially the multi-coloured versions which appear to change colour when reflected by light!
Being stainless-steel, they are sturdy and durable, perfect for outdoor use, and they will not break when packed for picnics, trips out or camping. They also last a very long time which means, a single stainless steel straw eliminates the need for countless plastic straws that are often not reusable or recyclable. Makes these metal reusable drinking straws a great eco-friendly choice.
Other alternatives to metal reusable drinking straws include glass straws (which can easily get broken), paper straws (not as strong and often not recyclable as they are also made with other composite materials and hay and bamboo straws (which are not long lasting and delicate to clean).
So why not consider the impact of the use of these single-use plastic straws to our environment and make the switch to reusable stainless steel straws!
