PROBLEM: Even though most disposable plastic straws are recyclable (#2 and #5 plastics), the majority of them are not recycled and often end up in the landfill or strewn along roads or beaches. Plus they contain harmful BPA, a known endocrine disruptor. You could request a straw-less beverage, but straws are very handy, especially on the go or for drinks containing a lid.
SOLUTION: Our Stainless Steel Drinking Straws are reusable as well as convenient. They help eliminate single-use plastic straws (and wrappers) from our landfills, and help keep beaches, parks and waterways cleaner for us all. And because they don’t contain BPA, they’re much healthier for you and your family.*
