I am so excited finally be able to offer a collapsible straw that is completely plastic-free! I have seen so many of these around but all come in some sort of plastic packaging or plastic case - NOT this one!!
Not only is it crazy handy but you can use at any size for different types of drinks/glasses you get when you're out AND the straw is made of 60% recycled stainless steel!
This reusable stainless steel straw is the perfect alternative to single-use plastic straws! The straw is collapsible and comes with a plastic-free travel case that can easily be attached to your purse or backpack with the attached key ring, making it perfect for a night out or adventure to town. It makes a perfect gift for smoothie lovers.
I can not even explain the amount of plastic straws I find on beaches when I'm out walking my whippet and it breaks my heart! The number of straws wasted every single day across the world is in the MILLIONS!
Think about the last time you used a straw... how long did you actually use it for? And I bet each time you got a new drink this straw was thrown away into the normal bin and not reused. Plastic lasts for 100's of years and when it does break down it's harmful to the planet and the creatures on it so now is the time to #SAYNOTOTHESTRAW.

Collapsible Metal Straw & Travel Case Rose Gold - Zero Waste Club
MILLIONS of straws as used and thrown away just minutes after use every single day across the world! The US alone uses 500 million straws a day.
Most of these are thrown straight into the bin, will never be recycled and will end up in our oceans, killing the amazing creatures in it.
If you haven't already then now is the time to make a stand that STRAWS SUCK and always #REFUSETHESTRAW.
I have also created a 4 pack of my own bamboo straws with a limited edition 'Plastic Freedom' laser etching on the side and a handy bag to carry them around in to make saying no to plastic even easier!
If you notice a bar, cafe or restaurant that you visit which still use plastic straws then make sure when you order your drink you say "please don't give me a plastic straw". I've learnt the hard way that if you don't ask at the point of ordering you will more than likely end up with one in your drink.
If people ask why you're asking for no straw when you order then start the conversation about how bad single-use plastic is. I've done this many times in the past and had such a good response!
It's ALWAYS worth messaging the manager when you get home too to express how bad plastic straws are and how they can change one of the following:
- Don't automatically give out straws - keep them behind the bar and only give to those who ask
- Put a sign up about saving the ocean and #refusethestraw
- Suggest an alternative like paper straws!
Or just send me the place you visited and I will be more than happy to message them for you!
