Helping The Planet with Plastic Straw Alternatives
How to Find the Right Straw for the Job
Plastic straws are bad for the planet and many cities have taken steps to ban plastic straws, with more bans in the works. Earlier this week, we explained why plastic straws are bad. Now we want to take time to look at eco-friendly and safe alternatives to plastic straws.
Plastic Straw Bans
Seattle and Washington D.C. have both passed bans on disposable plastic straws. A number of other cities and counties throughout the U.S. have passed similar bans or are working towards similar bans. The thought is that by banning plastic straws, there will be less plastic trash in the waste stream and more importantly, less plastic trash in the oceans.
Making Things Easier
Drinking straws are a convenience item for a lot of people. Straws make it easy to drink from a to-go cup while driving without making a mess or to slowly sip a milkshake without getting a brain freeze. In many instances, people can simply do without when faced with a plastic straw ban. This is not the case for everyone. Many people with disabilities rely on drinking straws.
Banning plastic straws is great for the planet, but many people still need straws. Here are several plastic straw alternatives.
When it comes to durability, stainless-steel straws are an excellent choice. Drinking straws made from stainless-steel can deliver years of dependable use and are dishwasher-safe, meaning they are easy to clean.
These 10-inch custom logo silicone straws are made from food-grade silicone and can stand up to regular use. These reusable straws can be washed and used again and again. The soft material is gentle, making these straws great for children to use.
These flexible collapsible straws fold into a compact pouch, meaning they can easily be taken along on the go. The pouch can be customized with your branding information, making these straws an eco-friendly and effective promotional product.
Paper straws are an eco-friendly plastic straw alternative because the paper is biodegradable. These paper straws with logo pouch include five 9-inch straws made from food-grade kraft paper. The striped pattern gives these straws a classic and fun look.
The travel pouch makes it easy to take these straws on the go or to store in a car or desk, so a straw is always close by. The pouch is made from recycled content and your customers can simply refill the pouch with new straws or re-purpose it when they run out of the original straws.
