Drinking Straw Alternatives

Drinking Straw Alternatives

It is common knowledge that plastic straws are one of the most harmful plastic items – far worse than others as they are classified as “single-use” plastic. These items have a shockingly short lifespan, normally used once and then discarded to landfill. Like other plastics, they never biodegrade and take up to 200 hundred years to break down.

However, there are many drinking straw alternatives, with manufacturers producing bamboo, paper and silicone variants.

Apart from our Black Qubd Copper Drinking Straws, let’s explore the other alternatives on the market.
