Ditch the plastic
We all know plastic straws are a danger to marine life and the environment, yet 8.5 billion of the things are estimated to be used in the UK alone every year. They are typically only used for less than 20 minutes and take up to 500 years to decompose!
Care for them
To care for your straws wash and dry them after every use.
Soft drink - simple rinse with luke warm water and small drop of washing up liquid.
Thicker drinks such as a smoothie - In addition use a straw cleaning brush or a thin piece of cloth to pull through, to make sure no bits get left inside of your straw.
Let your bamboo straws dry fully.
