Mulled Mind is an innovative eco-friendly company based in the United States that produces handmade stainless steel straws, and they were kind enough to contribute some of their straws for use in the Gentle World kitchen. They craft any size straws to fit your needs, including a customizable option, and provide a nifty cleaning brush for purchase.
WHY ARE STAINLESS STEEL STRAWS IMPORTANT?
Stainless steel straws are free from the chemicals that come in their plastic counterparts. Chemicals in plastic straws (particularly polypropylene and BPA) leach into your drinks – especially if you are sipping on a hot drink! These chemicals are said to cause obesity and cancer, making it a very important reason to say NO to plastic straws.
Plastic straws have a profound negative impact on the environment. In the US alone, about 500 million straws are thrown away every single day, and none of them will ever fully decompose. These straws end up being ingested by wildlife and harming animals and ecosystems alike.
HOW CAN YOU MAKE A DIFFERENCE?
Avoid any negative health or environmental impacts by simply rethinking your choices. Rather than taking a single use straw at juice bars, smoothie shops or coffee shops, bring your own Mulled Mind stainless steel straw on-the-go!
