Now I have a place to buy re-usable straws! This post follows on from a previous one about ways to preserve our planet and its inhabitants. Even small acts can make that difference, so why not take action regarding the simple drinking straw?
Instead of constantly throwing away the plastic ones we use at home for smoothies, I have discovered Biome which is an exciting Australian company that tries to source locally, and has a major focus on being ecofriendly, with a focus on truthful labelling and natural healthy ingredients.
Options for straws include disposable bamboo ones handmade from Bali, these will, once disposed, just break down naturally. There are glass ones, more suited to adults, and also stainless steel ones, plus little brushes available to clean them with ? So exciting all that choice, and all of it good.
There are recipes and ingredients for making your own simple natural toiletries and cosmetics with zero waste and are plastic free, from making your own toothpaste to making your own laundry detergent.
The site offers loads of well researched information and lots of tips for eco friendly ways of living, eating and storing food. I will definitely be using the Biome site and checking out their stores. Why don’t you?
