Although you might not consider it, the plastic draws you use for sipping can be problematic for our waterways. Roughly five trillion tonnes of plastic is currently floating in the sea, polluting and damaging fragile coastal eco systems. Straws are one of the biggest culprits when it comes to plastic that washes up on our shores, which is why the cool cats from Clean Coast Collective have manufactured a stylish alternative. Clean Coast’s gold straw set is a great gift for the environmentally conscious as it’s a fashionable way to sip your beverage of choice, guilt-free.
Made from polished gold-plated stainless steel, these beauties will help reduce the amount of plastic straws you use on a weekly basis, preventing them from sitting idle in landfill or clogging up waterways. Straws come in slim and wide varieties and with a cleaning brush. Clean Coast Collective also crafts island bamboo toothbrushes and shampoo bars made from rosemary, nettle, cold-pressed coconut oil and essential oils. All profits from the sale of these products go towards funding expeditions to clean up our country’s most polluted beaches. Head to the Clean Coast Collective website to order a set.
