Emma Cohen & Miles Pepper are raising money for FinalStraw, the world’s first collapsible and reusable straw on Kickstarter. Clean, compact and brand new. For anyone who wants to get rid of single-use plastic from their life and the planet.
The world’s first foldable and reusable straw has finally arrived. Following in the footsteps of disposable coffee bags and cups, governments are now waging a war against plastic straws.
With the British using 8.5 billion straws a year and the Americans about 500 million a day, is it any wonder?
But what is the problem? The problem with plastic straws is that they take around 200 years to decompose, and because the material cannot biodegrade, they remain in the environment for thousands of years clogging landfills, polluting the oceans and causing damage to marine life.
For anyone who wants to get plastic out of their lives, and off the planet, there are already reusable straws on the market – some made of bamboo or titanium, some made of glass – but they are not easy to carry when on the go.
The possible solution? FinalStraw – The world’s first foldable, reusable straw that folds into a case small enough to fit on your keychain.
Created by Emma Cohen and Miles Pepper in Canada, the straw is made from stainless steel and designed to last a lifetime, while the container is made from 100% recycled plastic.
It can be used for both hot and cold beverages, is dishwasher safe and is BPA free.
And, if you’re wondering how to keep it clean on the go, FinalStraw also comes with a handy cleaning brush that fits right in the box.
FinalStraw launches this year with delivery scheduled for November 2018.
