Plastic Straws Need to Go
"Paper straws don't work!" some people say. And it's true that while paper straws are better for the planet than plastic straws, they have their drawbacks. First, they barely last long enough to finish a single beverage. Second, they then need to be replaced with another straw, thus increasing waste as well as costing money. Third, while the breakdown rate of a paper straw is much better than for plastic, the fact remains that in the end, it is disposed of and becomes trash that needs to be dealt with.
Paper Straws Aren't the Answer
It's clear that reusable straws are ultimately the answer when it comes to being both ecologically and fiscally responsible. Since they are capable of being washed and reused many, many times, they don't create nearly the waste that disposable straws do. And although they are more costly at first, over the long haul they actually save money over disposables because they can withstand so much more use. But which reusable straws are the right ones for you? Glass and bamboo are both trendy choices now, but the material that has a reputation for durability is also the one that pioneered the field of reusable straws: stainless steel. The smart money is on stainless-steel reusable straws.
