Sustainable Sipping: Luxury Reusable Straws

Sustainable Sipping: Luxury Reusable Straws

Single-use plastics, such as those used to make shopping bags, bottles and drinking straws, have created a crisis in our oceans that threatens to have disastrous effects. Thanks to growing awareness of the issue, however, change is happening with a number of ocean-friendly hotels vowing to go plastic-free and laws introduced to ban microbeads in beauty products.

It has also never been easier to go plastic-free at home or on board thanks to a whole raft of brands offering sustainable alternatives to everything from plastic toothbrushes and bottles to clothing and make-up packaging. Not sure where to begin? Start small with these stylish alternatives to single-use plastic straws...
