Reduce your Plastic- Drinks

Who enjoys an ice cold Starbucks drink or maybe a Frappe? Gotta love those $1 drinks we seem to see everyone offering!  We love them SO MUCH in fact that about 500,000,000 straws are thrown away each day! To visualize, that is approximately 125 school buses filled with straws EACH DAY! Now don't get us wrong,  We know that straws are convenient.  But they are also filling up our landfills and littering our highways and precious oceans and waterways.  

Now with all these new laws about plastic straws (YAY) people are making conscious decisions to make some changes for our future generations. 

You can reduce your plastic while still enjoying those amazing drinks.  Here are a couple reusable options to consider from Nature Baby Outfitter;

  • Stainless Steel Straws
  • Silicone Straws
  • Silicone Travel Cups
  • Stainless Steel Water bottles

So let's talk STRAWS!!!

 

Stainless steel straws are a great option, and a personal favorite of mine. These are great for cold drinks especially as they seem to give me an even colder sensation as the liquid passes through them. They come in a variety of sizes, making them a perfect option for thicker drinks like smoothies. They are easy to clean with a straw cleaner and soapy water and most are dishwasher safe! Because these are steel, supervision is recommended when children are using them.

  

Steel not your jam?  How about Silicone!  These are the most family friendly option to replace plastic. These are BPA free, microwave and dishwasher safe. They can be boiled to sterilize as well! These are flexible making them perfect for younger kids.  
There are even straw options with a travel case! Never leave home without a straw again! And don't fret about it getting super dirty and gross by just tossing it inside your bag or leaving it in your center console.  Just the thought of what my cup holders currently look like makes me cringe a bit. 

 

Now let's take it one step further and try to reduce disposable cups in general!  There are a plethora of reusable cup and water bottle options as well!! With stainless steel and silicon options, you'll never need paper or plastic travel cups again!! Both options are great for hot or cold drinks as well! Tea or coffee, water or smoothies, these cups work for everything!
