The sustainable alternate, Silicone Straws
Silicone straws are made from non-harmful food-grade Silicone that is a stable material, which means that even on high temperatures, the chemicals do not leak into food or drink.
Silicone is a non-plastic BPA free material making it the ideal material for drinking straws and other kitchenware. On the other hand, Plastic is made from petroleum base that absorbs toxins and chemicals which seeps through on high temperatures.
Benefits of Silicone Straws
Silicone straws are very safe, they are soft and bendable, yet durable enough to keep their form. Their pliable texture is safe for straw chewers and those with sensory issues. Because of this, they are even safe for kids to use and less worrisome for parents.
Not just this, Silicone straws are safer for our bodies, because unlike plastic, silicone does not leak chemicals through when exposed to heat variation. Hence, they are also BPS & BPA Free.
