Mmmm… that is a tasty beverage!
We never really think about the harmless little straw we get with our soda, shake, or juice. But it really adds up. MILLIONS of plastic straws are used every day. That’s a lot of plastic waste! But we can put a dent in that number. All it takes is a little ingenuity and a little responsibility. This reusable bamboo straw is light, nifty, and you can take it on the go. Sustainability is about making eco-friendly changes in our daily habits!
The merchant, Almitra Sustainables, has a vision of a fully sustainable world. Their products are thoughtfully designed, and are made largely of natural materials, or low processed materials. They recognize that going plastic free and reducing waste as lifestyle must be set by example. Yet, it is challenging to make the shift which would replace plastic or chemicals in day-to-day life. And so their mission is to make this quest easier for others.
Almitra Sustainables is a step towards co-existence. They say, “If we don't coexist we won't exist. Sustainable living is the only way to save our home, and our bigger home - our planet!”

Seabirds can ingest as much as 8 percent of their body weight in plastic? For humans, that’s the equivalent of an average woman having the weight of two babies in her stomach!

A great substitute for plastic straws that you can carry with you wherever you go.
There is no denying that we have to take responsibility for our generation of waste. But why throw away something that you can just reuse? Bamboo straws to the rescue!
