If the devastating fires in Australia aren’t enough proof that something needs to be done about the environment, then I’m not sure what is. I have long abided by the less waste mantra and try to reduce my carbon footprint as much as possible—becoming a vegetarian in ‘97 was just one way of doing that, but there’s always more I could be doing to help our planet, and sometimes small steps can make a big difference.
Have you tried reusable straws yet? I’m new to this green trend but all ears, because I drink a lot of iced coffee during the warmer months and frequent dining establishments that sadly STILL give out plastic straws. Zoku has a reusable stainless steel straw that is small and lightweight and even comes with a carrying case in case you want to take it on the go. A few weeks ago I met a blog friend for lunch in Montclair and we were talking about the paper straws some restaurants are now dispensing (mostly I’ve seen them in the city but this was the first time at an eatery near me). I’ll be honest—I absolutely LOVE the initiative, not the paper straws. We both agreed that they get stuck to dry lips and I would have very gladly swapped it out with this one. It extends to 9 inches with a cool telescope design and is dishwasher safe so you can add that puppy to your load of dirty dishes for easy cleaning.
I’ve partnered with Zoku Pocket Straw and am giving away one of these nifty and portable telescope straws to a lucky reader. Enter the giveaway widget below, and don’t forget to follow Zoku on social media:
Good luck! (PS: here’s a sneak peak at some other products I’ll feature over the next few weeks. Stay tuned!)
