Plastic waste remains a major concern for consumers and businesses. On an annual basis, more than 250 million tons of plastic waste are created. Consumers often look for small and large ways to reduce their plastic footprint. Plastic straws continue to fall out of favor today. In their place, more companies and consumers have embraced Bamboo straws. They’re washable and reusable with none of the drawbacks of regular straws.
Plus, such straws are environmentally friendly to the highest degree. Little processing goes into creating a straw from Bamboo, unlike metal or other reusable straws. Consumers can buy a bulk pack of these straws and then use them everything. Fortunately, they’re suitable for all types of drinks and easy to clean. The average price on these products continues to drop as well. Bamboo is one of the best alternatives to plastic when it comes to straws.
