Why StrawZ wheat straws are a better alternative to metal Straws

In the quest for environmentally friendly alternatives to plastic straws, metal straws have made their entrance. While metal straws are more durable than their plastic counterparts, there are still some drawbacks associated with their use. In this article, we will discuss why StrawZ wheat straws are a superior alternative to metal straws and how they can contribute to a greener and more sustainable future.

Plastic straws are disappearing. What now?

The reason behind the disappearance of plastic straws. In recent years, there has been a growing awareness worldwide about the negative impact of plastic waste on the environment, particularly on our oceans. Plastic straws are among the most common types of plastic waste, leading to increased pressure on businesses and governments to take action.

In response to this, laws and regulations have been introduced to ban or discourage the use of single-use plastics (SUP legislation), including plastic straws.

This has led both consumers and businesses to seek sustainable and environmentally friendly alternatives, such as metal straws and StrawZ wheat straws.

The disappearance of plastic straws is a significant step toward a greener and more sustainable future for our planet. But are metal straws the sustainable alternative? That's how they are marketed. We at StrawZ believe it can be even better, namely with wheat straws.

Drawbacks of metal straws

1 Safety risks and discomfort

Metal straws can unintentionally cause injuries when used, especially among children. They are hard and inflexible, which can lead to serious injuries if someone bites too hard, falls, or slurps too enthusiastically. Furthermore, metal straws may not always provide a pleasant drinking experience as they quickly adopt the temperature of the beverage, which can be unpleasant for both hot and cold drinks.

2 Difficult Cleaning and Maintenance

Although metal straws are dishwasher safe, cleaning their interiors can be challenging. Special brushes are often required to ensure the metal straws are thoroughly cleaned. This extra effort and time do not guarantee a clean straw. Over time, metal straws can develop scratches and wear, negatively affecting the drinking experience.

Are metal straws sustainable? Choose the environmentally friendly alternative!

StrawZ wheat straws are made from wheat stems, a natural byproduct of wheat production. They are 100% biodegradable, compostable, and free from chemicals. This makes them not only an environmentally friendly alternative to metal straws but also to plastic straws.

Research has shown that these straws are also suitable for individuals with gluten allergies.
