My team and I had just finished a meeting the other day, and we started chatting about our current favorite movies, books, coffee shops and…straws. Yes, straws. Because here in California they’ve recently outlawed plastic straws, so everyone’s converting to paper straws which are, IMHO, just terrible. They get all mushy after about two minutes, and then you’re left drinking your drink out of a soggy, mushy straw and your whole drinking experience is more or less ruined, aside from the faint knowledge in the far back of your head that you’re doing some small part to help save the planet.
But can’t we have it BOTH ways? Can’t we all save the planet AND enjoy our favorite cold beverage through a well-designed, sustainable, form-holding straw? The answer is: YES! We all shared our favorite, reusable kitchen supply options that day, which I’ve since incorporated into my daily routine. I now love each item even MORE than their disposable counterparts, and just HAVE to share them with you, here, hoping that you’ll come to love them, too! Go Earth!
