You are often told: but the plastic is a real disaster for our planet. And among its greatest ambassadors, we find the straw that pollutes on an astronomical scale. A billion straws are consumed every day in the world, and many of them end up thrown into Nature, inevitably contributing to the ecological disaster that we all know.
If unfortunately, plastic straw continues to reign supreme in bars and the restaurants, many companies are trying to turn to solutions sustainable for our planet. And it's on Reddit that we have discovered an amazing alternative. A user has posted a picture taken in an Italian restaurant (whose location we unfortunately do not know) which has the particularity to propose to its customers to sip their drinks and their cocktails... with straws biodegradable made from pasta.
The initiative is original and has the merit of proposing a alternative durable and relevant to plastic straws. And looking for a little bit, we discover that the society behind this initiative is American and is called Pasta Straws. Their business, you understood it: to propose to the bars and the restaurants to use straws in pasta for the well being of our beautiful planet.
Unlike plastic straws that can take up to 400 years to break up, once used, those made of pasta break down quickly. A superb initiative that proves, once again, that alternatives to plastic are numerous, from the moment we choose to take an interest in it and to take care of our environment. Only downside: these straws are of course not recommended to the characters intolerant to the gluten. You will find more information on the company's website Pasta Straws.
Finally, if you are interested in the subject, we invite you to discover the idea of society. Loliware, who proposes to replace plastic with biodegradable and edible straws based onalgae.
