These are totally plastic free straws, no sneaky plastic liner! These reusable silicone straws are 100% premium food grade and vegan. Straws that have a plastic liner or are part plastic will turn white if pinched, twisted or pulled. Try that with these straws and that won’t happen as there is no plastic. You don’t need to worry about plastic emissions into the oceans and environment with these straws. Another easy swap!

The cleaning brush also does not contain any plastic. The bristles are plant based. Plastic brushes can shed microscopic pieces of plastic that then find their way into all areas of the environment. No worries about that with this product.
Then we come to the GOTS certified organic cotton carry pouch that comes with these silicone straws. Each pouch is made of natural thick, organic cotton canvas. To learn more about GOTS organic cotton, read about it here and here. It is surprisingly reassuring to know that use of water, dyes, waste products and wages are taken good care off. These straws have been developed by a UK company wishign to eliminate micro-plastics.
Care Instructions : please wash the straws before use. The silicone straws are dishwasher safe. For best result, handwash and clean inside the straws with the cleaning brush. After use, dry the cleaning brush and keep it dry between uses. The travel pouch should be washed at 30 degrees and then line dried. As there are no chemicals in the pouch it is likely to shrink by about 10-12% which has been factored into the design.
