Enjoy your favorite drinks while saving the environment by using this portable reusable drinking straw. Drinking straws are typically made of plastic and are intended for single use. In the US alone, there are around 500 million plastic straws used every day. Since plastic straws are non-biodegradable, they often end up in landfill sites. Over time, these plastic straws break into smaller pieces as they release hazardous chemicals into the soil, air and water. And because they are small and lightweight, tons of plastic straws regularly flow into the ocean every day, polluting the water and eventually killing marine life.
Enter reusable straws to save the day. The use of eco-friendly alternatives has indeed made it easier to make the change to a waste-free lifestyle. With a drinking straw that you can reuse for years, it significantly reduces the amount of plastic waste that potentially could have ended up in landfills and oceans. Most of these eco-friendly alternatives are made from stainless steel. Although these sturdy straws are virtually unbreakable, they’re not size-adjustable. And due to its high thermal conductivity, it’s actually not recommended to use on hot beverages.
The Stainless Steel Portable Reusable Drinking Straw
Silicone drinking straws were then introduced as an alternative to these. Unlike metal straws, these bendy and soft alternatives can be cut down to size if needed. Additionally, silicone is heat-resistant which makes it ideal for both cold and hot drinks. However, silicone easily absorbs scents and flavor, that’s why many people claim to discern a residual aftertaste with them. After sipping iced coffee, for example, the flavor and scent of coffee seem to stick. So, the next time you use it to drink orange juice for instance, you’re likely to taste a hint of coffee in every sip. Not to mention, silicone is also a magnet for oils which makes it a bit tricky to clean.
Many alternatives were then developed to solve these issues. There’s the one made from bamboo and the one made from hays. But both of these biodegradable alternatives often give a distinct earthy flavor that some people may find unpalatable. With all these things considered, it has been proven that stainless steel is still the most suitable material for reusable drinking straws. Other than the fact that the material conducts heat and is not size-adjustable, it could have been basically perfect. Well, guess what? It seems like all of these issues have been solved thanks to this stainless steel portable reusable drinking straw with a collapsible design.
