“It’s time to put an end to single-use plastics in all their forms. Straws, spoons, forks, knives, whatever. Enough is enough. Society and governments alike are coming to the realization that the vast majority of plastics used on a daily basis are made in such a way that they practically last forever in landfills or–worse yet–in our oceans. We’re talking about billions of single-use plastics tossed in the trash on a yearly basis! We have to do better. “
“The STRO straw is ultra compact (about 3″x1.5″x.6” in holder) and looks discrete enough to blend in on any keychain, bag, or belt buckle. It even slides right into your front pocket with ease. You may even forget it’s there… until you’re ready for a drink, that is! We know there are other reusable straw alternatives out there and we absolutely love that this market is growing because, frankly, it’s long overdue. We’ve found that many other reusable straws are either too bulky to carry around, too flimsy to sip straight, or too aesthetically unappealing. Paper straws are also growing in popularity, which is great, though they turn to mush unless you finish your drink within a few minutes of use. With the STRO straw, we set out to deliver an answer to all these problems. “
“Next up, we turned our sights on to single-use throwaway plastic utensils. You know the ones you find at virtually every fast food restaurant or deli. Plastic spoons, forks, knives–you name it. The plastics are built to be sturdy so they don’t break while you’re eating but the problem with that is that they take forever (almost literally!) to decompose so it’s easy to see why plastic utensils are some of the most destructive products in the history of mankind. We have to curb the use and production of single-use plastics before it’s too late. The SPORQ is a compact, convenient solution to this problem.”
