"This is the summer of the plastic straw ban," The Wall Street Journal stated in a recent article outlining this season's extra push to ban said single-use drinking tubes. And they're not wrong.
Summer 2018 has marked the months during which many large corporations, like Starbucks Corp and Disney Co, committed to phasing out single-use plastic straws, and more individuals are following suit and taking it upon themselves to find environmentally friendly and/or reusable options (or even choosing not to use them at all).
Among the people taking this plastic pollution crisis into their own hands are reality TV star Kim Kardashian, model Gisele Bündchen, an insane number of Amazon customers. In fact, people are buying YIHONG Reusable Stainless Steel Drinking Straws so rapidly that they're regularly topping Amazon's list of movers & shakers — yesterday, they were in the #2 Home & Kitchen spot.
For just $6.99, one pack of these stainless steel lifesavers comes with 4 bent straws (two 8.5" and two 10.5" ones) and a cleaning brush. Additionally, because these are plastic and BPA free (as well as multi-use), you are guaranteed to lower your carbon footprint. With everyone's help, maybe we can stop the ocean from having more plastic than fish in it by 2050.
