I think compared to carbon emissions and corporate pollution, disposable plastic drinking straws are probably a fractionally small part of what’s killing planet Earth. But I suppose every little bit helps, and now there’s FinalStraw to make it possible to use a single straw for your entire life, should you desire.
Billed as “the world’s first collapsible, reusable straw,” FinalStraw is a compact gadget you can attach to your key ring, and deploy whenever you see any standing fluid that needs to be sucked up into your mouth (at this point I’d like to congratulate myself on coming up with the least appealing way possible to describe what a straw does).
And in case you were wondering, FinalStraw even has a built-in cleaning device for keeping it as fresh as a just-unwrapped traditional straw. You can learn more, and pre-order one starting at $20 and up at the product’s Kickstarter listing right here.
