Jan 22, 2020 Custom Reusable Drinking Straws
10 years ago drinking straws were a commonplace item. Almost every household had them at all times and most restaurants would give them to you whether or not you even wanted them. Now, the world has become more cognisant of the ecological impacts, and it’s even trendy to use eco-friendly promo items. Americans use an average of 500 million drinking straws every day. While each of these individual items seems small, this is enough straws to fill up 46,400 school buses each year.
As a company, you have likely found yourself in the same debate as most Americans this year- you want to have drinking straws at your next event, but you don’t want the negative effects to your environment. Maybe you know you used to have drinking straws in your office kitchen, and now that you know their negative effects, you can’t bring yourself to order any more.
