11 Of The Best Reusable Straws

Scotland is fast on its way with other countries to fight against plastic waste so we have pulled together some of the best reusable straws out there…

It’s time to ditch the plastic

Even many fast food chains, pubs, clubs and restaurants are on board to swap millions of plastic straws for paper or reusable alternatives because, while the average lifespan of a plastic straw is usually around just 20 minutes, it can take up to 500 years for them to fully decompose.

With a reported £3 billion of single use plastic straws still being discarded every year in Scotland, the need for switching from single use plastic to reusable is greater than ever.

Plastic not only ends up in the sea and on beaches, ruining the picturesque landscape, but can also severely harm birds and marine life.

It’s Time To Start Reusing

You may have already swapped your disposable cups for a stylish reusable travel mug but could it be time to swap your straw habits too? In a bid to combat the increasing issue, people are urged to opt for alternative materials instead, including biodegradable paper, glass, metal, steel and reusable plastic straws that can be cleaned and used again and again.

We’ve narrowed down our top picks of the best reusable straws…
