You may not be a fan of paper straws. And honestly, we don't blame you. They're almost universally ill-equipped to handle their one job. But as sub-par as most paper straws are, most of us would agree they're better than the usual alternative.
Single-use plastic straws are part of a plastic scourge that has landfills exploding and everywhere else teeming with discarded plastic refuse. In the U.S. alone, we go through 500 million straws per day. And researchers believe there could be over 8 billion straws — 8 billion! —currently littering the world's beaches right now.
In addition to their planet clogging downsides, many plastic straws aren't even all that great at their job anyway, especially if you're trying to drink a thick milkshake or a smoothie.
You can strike a blow for adequate drinkability in any situation as well as our environment with this reusable straw bundle, which includes a BiggieStraw, a FinalStraw and carrying cases for each.
If you're looking to suck up a healthy liquid or semi-liquid, look no further than the Biggie Straw. Designed to last a lifetime, this reusable, responsibly-made straw has an angled tip and puncture piece on the cleaner, ready to tackle all your bubble teas, smoothies, milkshakes and more. When not in use, the Biggie Straw easily folds up and fits inside its keychain-sized carrying case until next time.
While the Biggie Straw is dishwasher safe, it also comes with its own cleaning squeegee tool that stores in the case for quick cleaning anywhere you are.
Meanwhile, the bundle also includes another straw alternative, the original Final Straw. Originally seen on Shark Tank, the Final Straw is also a reusable, collapsible straw that stores safely in its own convenient micro-sized carrying case. But unlike the Biggie, the Final Straw is collapsible stainless steel, a telescoping straw that's ready to deploy into any drink at any time. An air-tight straw for your hot, cold, or even lukewarm drinks, all you have to do when done is give it a quick clean, then slip it right back into its case.
This bundle gets you one of each — a Biggie Straw and a Final Straw — for over 20 percent off their regular price. For both, they're on sale now for just $29.99.
