Ecoy's range of reusable straws are made of sustainably sourced, 100% organic bamboo. Bamboo straws are our top choice compared to stainless steel straws or silicone straws as they require the least carbon and energy demands to produce.
#stopsucking plastic straws
"It's only one straw" said 7.6 billion people. We've all heard it before. People mistakingly think that individual actions do not impact climate change. When we zoom out and observe consumption habits across Australia and the global population, we can see how challenging the situation is to tackle. Take one small action for earth and give plastic straws the kick by swapping to reusable straws.
Reusables straws, particularly the drinking straws made from bamboo, are minimalistic and organic looking. Score style points with your friends when out and about sippin' on all that goodness!
Plastic straws are made of polypropylene, a type of plastic made from petroleum. While approved by the TGA, there is potential for these straws to leach chemicals into your drink. Play it safe and switch to reusable straws.
Coming in a 5 pack with a cleaning brush and with an organic cotton carry pouch, you can carry your reusable straws anywhere. The carry pouch fits conveniently in your handbag or backpack.
Reusable drinking straws
With more plastic predicted to be in the ocean than fish by 2050, every item in our throwaway culture needs to be rethought. Reusable drinking straws are environmentally friendly because they're resource light to manufacture, can biodegrade or be recycled and finally, can be reused hundreds of times.
Approximately 1% of plastic pollution originates from straws. So switching to reusable straws is not going to have a huge impact though it is a step in the right direction. We encourage conscious consumption which ultimately means not using straws is the best solution.
Research from HSU University revealed that bamboo straws top the list of eco-friendly reusable straws. The study measured how many times one would need to reuse a straw to be more carbon and energy efficient than the purchase and disposal of a plastic straw. We wrote a detailed blog analysing this research.
Stainless steel straws are definitely environmentally friendly due to their ability to be melted down and recycled into new products in perpetuity. The only issue is that its quite labour intensive to produce stainless steel straws which is why we recommend bamboo instead.
Silicone straws are great for kids and youngsters due to safety reasons. Silicone straws aren't solid so they don't easily break like glass and can't poke any eyes out.
There are several reusable straws that make for great alternatives to plastic straws. These include bamboo, stainless steel straws, silicone straws, glass straws and plant-based straws.
Our straws come with cleaning brushes which you can use to tackle any drink residue. We would recommend using boiling water and vinegar every month or so to keep straws looking super clean.
