The European parliament has voted to ban single-use plastic cutlery, cotton buds, straws and stirrers as part of a sweeping law by 2021 against plastic waste that despoils beaches and pollutes oceans.
For a while I’m trying to use less plastic by stop using plastic straws at home and in restaurants
Back in the days when I still was a student, I worked at many hospitality avenues were I can tell you with my own experience that hygiene is not always their main priority. So these days is better to be safe.
There are many alternatives for plastic straws, like glass, bamboo or paper.
Glass and bamboo straws will break easily – glass is very unsafety if it breaks and paper straws (which is not reusable) but will be soaky after 5 minutes.
That’s why I prefer reusable stainless-steel straws (from my own pop-up store, duh!!).
I asked my customers for their opinion and created a benefits list for you:
