Don’t you just love it when you arrive at your local cafe to see the line of people all holding their reusable cups?
Honestly, it’s one of our favourite things to see especially because they look so good all lined up in a row as the fresh coffee is poured in.
These stylish eco heroes are super easy to take everywhere and you can choose just about any colour under the sun. If you’re anything like us at RY, yours will be a beautiful shade of teal (who scored one of our RY keep cups last year?!) ;)
We have multiple lying around the office because just like lip balm, you need a desk one, a car one and one for your handbag.
But....! Have you ever ordered a big healthy green smoothie at that same cafe and all of a sudden found yourself with one of the cafe's single use straws?! All of a sudden, all of those brownie points you'd built up with your reusable coffee cup have gone out the window...
Let’s be honest, it’s something we’ve all been guilty of, but we no longer have to be!
With a reusable straw like the one from Camel’s Back Bamboo in our Autumn box, we can ditch another VERY common source of plastic!
There are sooo many positives to using this stylish little reusable straw:
- They’re compact and can fit easily into your handbag, so you can bring them everywhere.
- They’re reusable, so you can whip them out of your bag for every future smoothie, juice and cocktail.
- They’re convenient to clean and even come with a cleaning brush while also being completely dishwasher safe.
- They’re biodegradable, unlike plastic straws which take 500 years to break down! We like to whip this fact out whenever someone looks at us funny for whipping out our bamboo straw.
So make sure you pop your little gift bag from Camel’s Back right next your coffee cup or straight into your handbag. This will be one easy change you can make that will have a positive impact on the world, we think that deserves a smoothie to celebrate!
And one final tip: there are some AWESOME reusable smoothie cups out there, so extra points go to anyone who purchases one and insists their local cafe sell both reusable straws and smoothie cups!You can read more about Camel's Back Bamboo on their website: https://camelsbackbamboo.com
