From plastic to bamboo, paper to glass: 5 eco-friendly alternatives to plastic straws
The world sips through 1 billion straws a day. Between the US and UK we get through over 550 million plastic drinking straws a day.
Think about it, you use it for a few minutes supping a smoothie, sipping a cocktail or shoving in a can of drink. But straws suck. They take over 200 years to break down – and when they do, the tiny plastic microparticles end up everywhere from our food chain to our tap water.
Ideally you’ll stop sucking, but if you need a straw, here are Pebble’s 5 best eco-friendly alternatives to plastic drinking straws.
Christmas present inspiration that’s good for the planet too

December’s ‘Lust List’ features gorgeous jumpers and sumptuous rugs, all made from recycled plastic bottles. These gorgeous ethical and sustainable finds will bring smiles to the faces of eco-fashionistas, foodies and design lovers alike, not to mention give those pointless plastics a new lease of life.
