Metal Straws: Better for You and Our Planet
Did you know that millions of plastic straws are disposed of every single day!? One #switchtosafer I have made is ditching plastic straws for stainless steel straws. Not only do they look beautiful, but they keep our planet happier too. This is a great set to start with, don't worry they come with a cleaning brush too! Next up for me is a set of gold ones!
- Plastic straws have been known to end up in trash dumps in our oceans and harming animals (remember this video of the sea turtle?)
- The last we see of them is in the garbage, but straws do not biodegrade so they end up in landfills, creating more waste and pollution.
- Many cheap plastic straws contain BPA and polypropylene that can leak into your beverage, especially hot ones! GROSS!
- Just say no plastic, get prettier straws, and impress your guests.
