Help reduce the amount of plastic and paper straws thrown away every day by investing in a stylish reusable one! This durable and reusable short drinking straw is made from stainless steel, and is the perfect size for a cocktail, gin and tonic or for children's drinks at home. I love taking these on night outs as they don't take up as much room in your bag!
Wash before first use. For best results clean inside of the straw using a straw brush (available separately) before washing.
Why I love this:
- Approximately 15cm long x 0.8cm diameter.
- BPA-free, PVC-free, phthalate-free and lead-free.
- Dishwasher safe.
Single Stainless Steel Short Straw - A Slice of Green
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 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
MILLIONS of straws are 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.
