Ecological, edible straws are the new trend !
Plastic is damaging the environment, so far no news. Plastic straws are a curse for sea life. They are too small to be recycled and we consume more than a billion of them every day. At best, they are incinerated with our household waste. At worst, they end up in the ocean with the 8 million tonnes of plastics that are already devastating marine biodiversity.
In order to eliminate this threat, the European Parliament and the European Council have decided to ban the use of plastic straws by 2021.
Many professionals have already removed them from their establishments.
We all agree, ecology is essential, however with the summer coming up, nothing is more pleasant than drinking your Mojito outdoor with a straw!
