Why we made the metal straw and why swap?
In the UK alone, we use nearly 5 billion plastic straws every year! And these straws are too lightweight and too small to be recycled. So they end up in landfills, incineration and even in the oceans! So we decided to create a product without any plastic or silicone. Just 100% food safe stainless steel metal. 100% recyclable at end of life.
Did you know that 60% of existing steel products are made from recycled steel? Steel is a uniquely sustainable material because once it is made it can be used, as steel, for ever. Steel is infinitely recycled. Meaning that if humans are good with recycling, we will at one point get to a stage where we will no longer need to mine for new metal and we can just recycle the old metal to create new products out of.
