To follow up on where to purchase straws not made of plastic, Ainsley Smith shared that craft stores carry paper straws, and that Common Crow and REI have metal straws. Megan Wolf has found paper straws multiple times at Marshalls.
Ainsley sent a link to 100 percent biodegradable rainbow straws on Amazon and also a five piece metal rainbow straw set from Kleen Kanteen. She writes, “also check out @CleanGloucester on Saturday’s for#StrawFreeSaturday tips.
Megan shares the following, ” I wasn’t served a single straw on my entire 28 day tour throughout Europe. I have since been very mindful not to use any and am sure to ask my server “no straw, please.” I’ve noticed a lot more establishments have become aware of this issue and are incorporating alternatives.” She included the video. Love this idea-pasta straws are the way to go!
Thank you Ainsley and Megan for your ideas and input!
