The story behind The Silicone Straw Company: I live with my family in a picture-postcard village in the Yorkshire Dales and feel so lucky to live somewhere that other people come on holiday. Along with the holidaymakers we love to spend sunny days down by the river with our children – picnicking, paddling and BBQing on long lazy days. It’s beautiful, but sometimes the aftermath isn’t. Plastic bottles, coffee cups, sandwich wrappers and plastic straws wash downstream, a reminder of the everyday single-use plastics that we use and discard on a daily basis. Seeing the impact these have on our beautiful area got me thinking – how could I use my 15 years of manufacturing experience to make being green that little bit easier? So I came up with a simple mission – to create a convenient alternative to single-use plastic straws. Our products are beautifully simple in design and made using the highest quality food-grade silicone here in the UK. While some companies have their eco-products made in China, we will always manufacture our straws here in the UK. It’s better for the environment and the local economy – ensuring that we promote sustainable living while controlling our ethical impact too. Thanks for visiting our online store and hope you find some reusable straws you like so you can live greener a little more easily.
