Small but sustainable gestures can impact the environment in a massive way, which is why innovations like the Finalstraw are shaking up the beverage industry.
The small device serves as a perfect alternative to using and throwing out non-biodegradable straws, which are thrown into dumps at alarming rates. In fact, recent research revealed that there's enough disregarded straws to wrap around the world 2.5 times, every day.
This reusable straw hopes to combat the mass pollution caused by straws through offering a more sustainable solution. The Finalstraw arrives in a sanitary case and folds up with ease. When needed, consumers can pull out the folding straw, revealing a full-sized device that can be utilized throughout the day.
