The Last Straw


It’s funny how a ground swell of public opinion can hit you personally in under a week. On Monday, my friend who owns a coffee shop asked me to pick up some plastic straws at Ikea. By the time I’d got them (Wednesday), the news had gone crazy over plastic cotton buds. By the time I delivered them to her (Friday), plastic straws were over. And now it seems ridiculous that we were ever using them.

Paper straws cost cafes about 2p whereas plastic are basically free. We say, suck up the 2p or don’t suck at all.

If you feel a kid’s birthday is incomplete without straws, try Kikkerland for loads of colourful, eco-friendly options.
