Glass instead of plastic – the drinking straw of the future

An exotic cocktail at your favourite bar, the cool juice spritzer directly from the bottle or a fruity milkshake at the ice cream parlour – with many drinks and food, the straw is just the thing for the right drinking experience. According to a recent study*, 36.4 billion single-use plastic straws are used and thrown away each year in the EU alone.

With the increasing pollution of the seas, the European Union parliament is the latest to come to the decision to ban the use of plastic straws. From 2021 the so-called plastic prohibition should make the drinking straw, as we know, it a thing of the past. Coinciding with the EU decision, we offer an alternative to plastic drinking straw: the GlasWerk drinking straw.
