Plastic Straws

Plastic Straws 

Plastic Straws 

Drinking straws made from wheat, great alternative to plastic ones.
With no added chemicals, also suitable for hot drinks, never soggy and fully compostable.
It is probably hard to imagine that something so small as the straw can be one of the greatest pollutants on the Earth!
On average 36,5 billion straws are used in Europe causing not only pollution,
but a great amount of carbon dioxide emissions for their production.
Moreover, in 2018 the EP voted on the "ban on disposable plastic products",
so from 2021 all MS are obliged to introduce a ban on the sale of single-use plastic items.
Even though many “biodegradable” alternatives have been marketed recently,
it is often misunderstood that they can be composted or can break down naturally.
SLAMka concentrates its efforts in finding a user- and environmental-friendly solution.
It produces straws made from wheat stems – an elegant zero-chemical solution which does no harm the environment and production emissions are nearly zero.

It’s not only a Plastic Straw

Plastic Straws 

It’s not only a Plastic Straw, it is a straw made of plastic like so many other products made of plastic, this straw is not the worst sinner,
but it is a sinner and we have to do something about the Pollution, also if it’s only a Plastic Straw.
Are plastic straws really all that bad?
