SILCA is doing its part to help eliminate the billions of plastic straws that find their way into the world’s oceans each year, with the launch of its new titanium drinking straws.
In just the United States alone, research shows that an estimated 500 million straws are used each day.
One study published earlier this year estimated as many as 8.3 billion plastic straws pollute the world’s beaches. Moreover, 8 million tons of plastic flow into the ocean every year, with straws comprising 0.025 percent of that.
As a result, plastic straws have become the major focus of recent environmental campaigns. This is in part because, for most able-bodied people, the straw is something you can easily do without.
For cyclists, especially aficionados who appreciate bespoke accessories, SILCA’s new titanium drinking straws are not only objects d’art, but they acknowledge the need for more environmental advocacy from the cycling culture.
According to SILCA, their reusable, sustainable titanium straws are laser engraved with company’s logo and hand anodized in one of 4 different colors, offering both straight and bent designs in order to accommodate different size drink ware.
“The cyclists who is sustainability and fashion conscious and wants a cool straw with better strength-to-weight ratio than ALL the others,” says SILCA.
SILCA’s titanium drinking straws sell for $30, which you can purchase here.
