The Benefits Of Bamboo Straws
Jun 5, 2019
These bamboo alternatives can be used again and again, cutting down on the pollution problem.
Bamboo straws can help protect the environment, can have logos lasered onto them and can provide a neat way to enjoy our favorite drinks.
Bamboo stalks are gathered, dried (for a couple of months, when the coloring changes from green to yellow), cleaned, drilled, sanded and sanitized, all in order to become drinking straws!
But why should we turn to reusable straws?
Well, in 1950, there were 2.5 billion people, which led to 1.5 million tons of plastic pollution. In 2016, the population went up to 7 billion people, meaning the pollution went up to over 320 million tons. According to SAS.org, this troubling number will double by 2034.
So what other alternatives are there?
Stainless steel straws are becoming more and more popular; instead of using plastic all the time, people can carry their own reusable straw around, which is easy to do with the many options that feature carrying cases and cleaning tools.
Another go-to option is a silicone straw. Mood-changing, retractable, collapsible... There are many fun choices when it comes to these eco-friendly products!
A good selection for parties, events and get-togethers is paper straws. They are still good for the earth, but they can sometimes be easier to handle with a large group of people (instead of providing everyone with a metal straw).
All of these high-quality, custom-branded products can be utilized for employee gifts, for swag to hand out to fans and for a good step in the right direction for Mother Earth.
