Straws


Personalised reusable straws are a great alternative to single-use plastic. Single-use plastic is one of the largest contributors to the pollution of our seas, and many people are looking to make the change to a more sustainable, eco-friendly alternative such as metal and silicone.

For some people, straws are an essential part of life. They can help those with sensitive teeth or issues drinking from a mug/glass, and they are an excellent gift for anyone who is looking to make the transition to a more sustainable life.

A personalised steel straw is a great gift for anyone who is eco-conscious.

If you’re looking to take your reusable straws out with you, it can be tempting to pop one into your bag before you leave the house.

We offer a handy wooden straw case for you to store one of your favourite reusable straws in, to ensure it stays clean and ready for use. Our wooden cases for your straws can be engraved with a name or small message, so you always know it’s yours.

Ditch the Plastic

Over 50% of all plastic contributed to our oceans has been produced since 2004. This staggering number means that our waterways are becoming dirty, and animals are being harmed. Animals such as turtles, fish and seabirds living in polluted waters can become sick, or hurt. Plastic straws are one of the most used, and therefore the most discarded, types of plastic that there is, and these items can fatally hurt animals that try to eat them.

The plastic that the majority of straws are made from is not biodegradable. This plastic will not decompose naturally and instead will stay in our oceans for thousands of years. Even if not discarded, this type of plastic is not reusable. Straws are particularly prone to ending up in the oceans, mainly due to beach littering. Once these plastic straws are in our waters, most plastic straws will simply break down into smaller particles, which leeches harmful chemicals into the air, soil and water, which are harmful to plants, people, and animals.

A number of places and businesses have made the decision to ban plastic straws, and move to metal straws, degradable paper straws, or simply no straws at all. Some cities where straws are banned are Hawaii, Seattle, Vancouver and New York City. Even some countries like Scotland, Taiwan and England have also banned the use of single-use plastic straws as a means to fighting the pollution epidemic. Some of the other locations to ban the use of single-use plastic for UK McDonalds, The University of Portland, and, at Queen Elizabeth II’s request, Royal Gift Shops and Museums in the UK.

Stainless steel, bamboo and silicone are all reusable alternatives to plastic that can be used time and time again, and will not break easily.
