In Australia about 10 million straws are used every day. That’s 3.5 billion a year.
While many people are no longer using straws, or are looking for reusable alternatives, these options are not necessarily suitable for people with limited mobility. The reusable metal and glass straws are a great alternative but are not malleable, soft and easy to clean – important for those who have limited dexterity.
Sustain’s new paper straws are stylish, strong and durable. They maintain their shape and strength during consumption. Available in a range of cocktail, regular, flexible, unwrapped and paper wrapped, they can be found in white, black and now classic kraft brown.
These straws have a plastic-free inner encased in paper, and have plastic-free outer packaging. Plus, they are fully compostable in a commercial facility. The straw range aims to prevent contributions to air, water and land pollution.
Most importantly, for those who find handling cups and mugs awkward, Sustain’s new classic kraft brown flexible straws can bend in any direction without compromising the drink. Due to the clever design of the 180˚ flex capacity, the straw can be easily manoeuvred into the mouth, and is adaptable to different positions and angles, whether the person is sitting or lying down.
All Sustain straws are commercially compostable – so that allows you to #suckresponsibly.
