Help protect the environment by using glass straws
Three billion plastic straws are thrown away every day. These disposable plastic products and others like them are widely criticized. There are discussions in the European Union and other countries about banning these products in the near future.
Unfortunately, a lot of the plastic waste ends up in the sea. For example, the Great Pacific Garbage Patch is not only endangering the ocean’s fauna, but also humans that are consuming fish contaminated with micro plastics.
Sustainable production processes and products are extremely important topics for SCHOTT. Therefore, SCHOTT is pleased to offer glass straws direct from the manufacturer. Glass is made from natural components; it is durable and can last a lifetime if not damaged.
Besides reducing plastic waste, the glass straws have many other advantages:
- Pure taste – the glass straws do not affect the drinks’ flavors as they are non-porous
- Glass straws can be reused many times
- Easy to clean and dishwasher safe
- Beautiful aesthetics due to transparency of glass
