Why We Love Them
Did you know that five billion disposable plastic straws are used and discarded every year? And they will persist in the environment or landfill for hundreds of years...
These silicone straws are the perfect swap for single-use straws!
We absolutely love the bright colour options and they are so much better for children than glass or metal straws.
These bendy silicone wonders are even fully recyclable!
THE SILICONE STRAW CO.
"The story behind The Silicone Straw Company
I live with my family in a picture-postcard village in the Yorkshire Dales and feel so lucky to live somewhere that other people come on holiday. Along with the holidaymakers we love to spend sunny days down by the river with our children – picnicking, paddling and BBQing on long lazy days.
It’s beautiful, but sometimes the aftermath isn’t. Plastic bottles, coffee cups, sandwich wrappers and plastic straws wash downstream, a reminder of the everyday single-use plastics that we use and discard on a daily basis. Seeing the impact these have on our beautiful area got me thinking – how could I use my 15 years of manufacturing experience to make being green that little bit easier?
So I came up with a simple mission – to create a convenient alternative to single-use plastic straws. Our products are beautifully simple in design and made using the highest quality food-grade silicone here in the UK. While some companies have their eco-products made in China, we will always manufacture our straws here in the UK. It’s better for the environment and the local economy – ensuring that we promote sustainable living while controlling our ethical impact too."
Bought these to carry in my handbag. The tin slips into my handbag and the straw is robust but easy to pack away.
Really happy with this item as it's the perfect straw for my handbag, super lightweight and comes in a handy wee container! So much better than disintegrating paper straws and there's no nasty metallic taste like some other reusable straws.
