FinalStraw Reusable Straws That Last
I don’t know about you but I am not liking the current paper straws that most restaurants use. I do agree that we need to replace the plastic straw but paper straws fall apart before I can finish my drink. FinalStraw is a great answer for this problem.
FinalStraw is a metal collapsible straw that has a carrying case that can be attached to your keychain for easy access. Have your straw with you at all times and no more straws that seem to unravel in the middle of your meal. Plus you are doing your part to keep straws out of our oceans.
Single-use plastics are a disaster—polluting our lands, endangering marine ecosystems, and contaminating the food chain. FinalStraw’s mission is to create reusable, responsibly made, badass products that reduce the need for plastics, empower individuals to change their buying habits, and raise awareness of the impacts of our everyday decisions.
Americans use enough straws to wrap around the Earth 2.5 times every day.
Because they’re so lightweight, straws often blow into waterways, landing in the ocean and harming wildlife.
Plastics straws can’t be recycled and don’t decompose, leading to long-term pollution of our land and oceans.

An estimated 7.5 percent of plastic in the environment comes from straws and stirrers, according to an analysis by a group of pollution research nonprofits called Better Alternatives Now, which based its results on trash collected by volunteers around the world. A recent report by the World Economic Forum projects that by the year 2050, the plastic in our oceans will outweigh the fish.
Sipping from a straw introduces air into the digestive tract. This can cause uncomfortable digestive symptoms, such as gas and bloating. When I’m counseling clients who are experiencing these symptoms, I always ask them about lifestyle habits, such as whether they drink from a straw often. Some of my clients have experienced significant improvements by ditching straws, as well as cutting back on two other habits that introduce air into the digestive tract: drinking carbonated beverages and chewing gum.
FinalStraw launched on Kickstarter in April 2018 with a goal of raising $12,500. The product struck a chord. In a matter of weeks, the campaign raised $1.89 million. The momentum hasn’t stopped. Since launching, FinalStraw has prevented approximately 70 million single-use straws from entering the environment.
FinalStaw is easy to use. They come with a straw and a great telescoping cleaning brush so you have everything you need right on your keychain or in your purse/pocket. It has a sectioned stainless steel outer shell with a pliable silicone interior. A slight pull on the outer casing, exposes the silicone interior and allows for the straw to fold into the most compact little case which has a small ring to hang off of a key chain, etc. Even fits into the largest cups, someone mentioned it fits into their Yeti. Since they are made from rust-proof stainless steel they will last a long time.
