It started as the grass-roots effort of a California kayak guide
, a 9-year-old activist in Vermont and many others, but the anti-plastic straw movement is now sweeping the globe. Cities such as Seattle and San Francisco have passed bans on single-use plastic straws, and when Starbucks announced that it would remove the plastic sippers from its stores by 2020, the world took notice. So, it's only natural that we wanted to be among the first to purchase this foldable, stainless steel straw, which fits nicely into a keychain-sized carrier. The straw's interior tubing is medical-graded for safety and the carrying case also includes a cleaning squeegee. If that's not convenient enough, it's also dishwasher safe. Snag one for $6.99 from finalstraw.com
or at one of many other websites.
