Over the last hundred or so years, plastic has become a huge part of our daily lives. Almost everything is packaged, wrapped, covered, served in or made from plastic, and although we’re now beginning to learn the ugly truths of the industry, we can’t seem to escape it.
Although we all now know how important it is, the prospect of changing your lifestyle in order to protect the planet can seem daunting. Don’t be disheartened or guilt tripped by “plastic free” movements – for the average person with a busy lifestyle, it’s almost impossible to completely avoid plastic.
Luckily, though, little changes can make a huge difference, and we reckon ditching plastic straws is a good place to start! Check out our sustainability page for more on our commitment to a greener future.

For some, avoiding plastic straws may seem silly and insignificant, but it has a real butterfly effect!
According to Reusablestraws.com, Americans alone use a scary 175 billion single-use plastic straws a year, most of which do not get recycled.
8 million tonnes of plastic enter the oceans each year, and it is estimated that 60-90% of marine litter is plastic-based. This ends up killing over 1 million marine animals every year. Something has to change.
