To take another step to be in David Attenborough's good books and to save the oceans and the planet I decided to stop using plastic straws in our house and go for these reusable ones instead.
I purchased these stainless steel straws from Amazon and for £6.99 I received:
4 straight straws
4 angled straws
2 cleaning brushes
1 velvet pouch for storage
They are really good, they don't taste funny and are not toxic, just totally environmentally friendly. They go in the dishwasher but are also easy to clean with the brushes provided. It feels so good to use them too and not have to throw away a plastic straw knowing the damage it will do to the environment.
I'm hooked and not going back now and I have even started refusing plastic straws in my drinks if in a bar or restaurant. You can also get fold away straws to carry with you while out and about which is great if you find yourself with a fast food milkshake in your hand.
The company Silver Straws who supply these straws have even gone as far as using non plastic packaging when sending these out to their customers. they arrive in a small cardboard box which I think is well thought out by them. There are a lot of companies that could take a leaf out of their book, as this is one of my pet hates seeing so much plastic packaging. We just don't need it.
If you would like to join the reusable straw club then go an order some now though this link (affiliated).......
Thank you for reading today. Do let me know if you have already tried these straws, do you like them? Surely they have to be better than soggy paper ones and maybe a bit safer than glass ones?
Join me again tomorrow for my Verse for Thursday but for now.......
What to Buy Wednesday
From May 2020 I will be writing a poem about something I may have purchased or would like to purchase.
