Our environment is fighting a sustained battle with plastic and desperately needs your support. A lot of people nowadays have realized the adverse effect of plastic straws to our environment. A single-use straw creating a huge negative impact to nature, especially marine life.  And now, new solutions have arrived promoting a safer product for straws. Metal straws, a reusable and easy to clean replacement. An environmentally- friendly product, they say. But unfortunately, let us learn to see the bigger picture. Utilizing metal straws may have its own advantages but its disadvantages are hardly to be overlooked. One is that it increases mining leading to damages in land, loss of biodiversity and air pollution. Are we really willing to risk it all? Gladly, there is a solution for that, and that is using bamboo straws as an alternative. It is actually natural, biodegradable and promotes the planting of more bamboo trees, where in fact,  bamboo trees can absorb up to five times more carbon dioxide than an equivalent stand of trees, making it more environmentally-friendly. It is cost-effective and reusable. Using bamboo straws is a wise decision, for little by little, it can help save our home, to be a better place to live in.
