Have any of you heard of Aardvark Straws? If you haven’t you must get them.
Aardvark paper straws were introduced in 2007, primarily in response to a growing anti-plastic movement. Restaurants, hospitals and other services industries, the main buyers of plastic straws in the US, were forced to look for more sustainable, eco-friendly options. – Aardvark Straws
Their mission is to make sipping, crafting, decorating and entertaining fun for everyone but also good for the planet.
Reasons why you should consider buying Aardvark Straws for future parties, decorating, sipping, or crafting:
- Plastic straws are made from polypropylene. Which is a petroleum bi-product that are also used in our vehicles – YUCK
- Plastic straw are the top 10 debris items and 44% of all seabirds and mammals have ingested these – poor animals.
- 90% of all trash floating in all oceans is comprised of plastic. I saw a video of a turtle had a plastic straw stuck in his nose because of this, it’s truly sad for our animals.
- And in the last 25 years 6,263,213 straws and stirrers were picked up during the beach clean up events – I’m seriously shocked by this you guys. We need to do better.
- Each day we use over 500,000,000 straws and that’s enough to fill up 46,400 large school busses a YEAR!
Aardvark Straws are:
- Safe and 100% FDA Food Grade Approved – Aardvark only uses nontoxic, BPA-free and 100% chlorine free materials.
- They’re durable so they won’t bleed or become soft unlike other paper straws.
- They’re eco-friendly – they only take 45-60 days to decompose.
- 100% made in the USA
- Can’t forget about how fun, colorful and creative they are.
After reading about what plastic straws and stirrers can do to our world I have taken a stand and switching to the Aardvark Straw. I’m such an animal lover and I can’t stand knowing how plastic is hurting nature and animals. When I first used the straw I was worried about how it was going to become soft and bleed but I have tested it out and the straw was in my cup for more than 6 hours and it was still going strong.
I plan to use this at my sisters baby shower next month to avoid having to get plastic straws for sipping. These will also look perfect for decorations.
They also have NFL style, wedding, and many more..
What are your thoughts on the Aardvark Straw? Are you willing to switch?
