By Dean Schwartz (SWAG Master): The new year is upon us and many of us are making resolutions. Many people are making the resolution to reduce their carbon footprint. And what better way to be more environmentally friendly than switching to reusable straws.
Did you know Americans use over 500 million plastic straws per day? That’s a lot of plastic. Most of these straws will end up in landfills or the ocean. In an effort to reduce waste, advocacy groups have been pushing to ban plastic straws, and it has been working. Companies like Starbucks have already begun phasing out plastic straws and Seattle enacted an outright ban on plastic straws.
The environment isn’t the only reason to stop using plastic straws. Switching to reusable straws can help save money and it is healthier for you, especially if you use them with hot drinks. Plastic disposable straws contain dangerous chemicals in the straw coloring. Coffee and other hot drinks can break down plastic straws, which can lead to chemicals seeping into your drink.
So, where does that leave us straw lovers? Thankfully there are a lot of options when it comes to reusable straws. And SOBO is bringing the SWAG. Let’s take a look.
Customized Reusable Straws
Reusable straws come in all colors and various materials, such as glass, stainless steel, and silicone. You save money and save the environment by cleaning and using the straws again and again. However, not all straws are created equal. Some taste too much like the material they’re made of, and some straws are not made of sustainable materials. Possibly most problematic, there is the whole issue of actually remembering to bring your straw with you. Many reusable straws are not easily portable, but taking them on-the-go is essential for the “no straw movement”.
Not to worry, SOBO has you covered. We can provide reusable straws that collapse into a convenient carrying case available in a range of different colors. And of course, we can customize by imprinting your logo on the carrying case. These reusable straws make the perfect giveaway for any brand looking to make a statement about being environmentally friendly.
