2 minutes of happiness, 20 years of wandering on the earth

Published on 20 / 07 / 2018

20 years ... This is the estimated time of plastic degradation in the ocean. So to tell you that the few minutes you spend sipping your lemonade with your pretty plastic straw are not really worth it.

These small plastic hollow sticks are in the top 10 most collected items on the beaches.

But that's not all. Did you know that every day more than a billion straws are used in the world. Of course, this number is also equivalent to the number of straws that are also thrown away. Because we have to go to the sad fact that no one, absolutely PER-SONNE, finishes a drink by saying "well, I'm going to wash my straw and keep it for later."

Unfortunately we all remember the video of this poor sea turtle caught with a straw. So instead of continuing to pollute the oceans, and to cause the death and suffering of thousands of sea animals taking our straws for food, why not turn to more ecologically sensible choices.

Today there are alternatives such as compostable and biodegradable paper straws, reusable straws made of plastic or stainless steel.

We made this choice and you can find beautiful models in our stores and even in our online store. What rhyme guilty pleasure with zero waste.
