By now I’m sure you’ve heard enough about the alarming effects of single use plastics. I’m also not the first person to talk about reusable silicone straws, but why is it then that we find more microplastic in our oceans than there are stars in the milky way?

“At our current rate of consumption, it is estimated that by 2050 there will be more plastic in the ocean than fish.”

It’s time to rapidly reduce our plastic use (a topic close to our hearts that I’ve previously written about). A small but significant change we all can make today is to SAY NO TO THE USE OF PLASTIC STRAWS!

PLEDGE to #refusesingleuse

I couldn’t image enjoying a milkshake of tropical cocktail without a straw…

Drinking from a straw is also much less messy for our 1 year old especially, and it even helps to develop her tiny mouth muscles.

Straws aren’t the enemy. Single use plastic is! That’s why we couldn’t help but jump onboard the Silistraw reusable silicone straws train.

What is the Silistraw?

Silistraw is a reusable silicone straw.

Why silicone?

  • It’s non-toxic, BPA free and an environmentally conscious material to use.
  • Silicone is durable, can be folded and cleaned easily. BONUS POINTS for being dishwasher friendly too!
  • It also makes these straws safe to use for hot and cold beverages and you wont have any metallic after taste lingering.
  • As a personal plus; our girls actually prefer the soft reusable silicone straws to all the other reusable straws we have. Ava can’t resists chewing the bamboo kind and the metal and glass straws can hurt both Lia and Ava if they aren’t careful while using them.

I especially like the clever storage capsule that comes with your Silistraw. Now I can always have everyone’s straws clipped onto our diaper bag or altogether in my handbag. No more rummaging through everything. How convenient!

The nifty little cleaning brush also included in the capsule makes cleaning our Silistraws easy.

“With a world population of over 7,6 billion people, if every person uses 1 plastic straw per day, that would result in over 7,6 billion plastic straws per day being added to the plastic waste that will take 200 years to decompose, whilst permeating its way into our food chain and harming sea and bird life across the world. Let’s take action together.”
