Simple: Just use paper straws if you need a straw at all.

or i reuse mine dozens of times and throw them in the dishwasher once a week, don't need to wash them more often, since i'm the only one using them and i don't drink sugary drink, so no ants or other stuff.

You're right, we really need to think about all the single-use plastics we drink from. We drink from a straw for 10 minutes, drink from a plastic water bottle for an hour, but the plastic stays in our environment for many years. Thanks for your comment!

Years ago straws were made out of paper - i think they were lightly coated with wax or something similar. So, they would last as long as it took to finish your drink, and then binned. I'm sure they could be made environmentally friendly again.

I pick up straws from the beach across the road from where I live every day - they are everywhere!

Thanks for doing that Kathryn, if you want to collect them and ship them to us we will be making a large plastic straw display to demonstrate the effect of these single-use products
