Plastic Straws and The Alternative

While in Orlando I decided to give something else a try…. getting rid of my use of plastic straws. I carried a metal straw every day instead which I got for $20 from obeehive. It’s a better alternative than using plastic.

It was easy. I never needed a straw and instead had this metal one to replace it. The amount of straws I actually didn’t use was quite a few so it made me a lot more aware!! I encourage everyone to buy their own reusable straw and do this as well.

Every little bit of effort counts in making this world a better place, so doing your part even if it means using a reusable straw is still a great feat. Many will pose the question, “straws aren’t even that big of a deal” “I’m only 1 person”; well if restaurants and places have to buy less straws to begin with then that is doing something to their market. Maybe it’ll become just as affordable to buy eco-friendly straws!

Anyway, rant over. Get yourself a reusable straw, they’re easy to use, convenient and most come with a case and a little straw cleaner as well!
