Strawbulous is a small UK based company founded by by Jonathan Walters that is aims to help people reduce their plastic waste by offering reusable alternatives to single use plastic drinking straws.
Having studied Natural Sciences, Jonathan was struck by the amount of damage being inflicted on the environment due to non-recyclable waste.
It was widely reported earlier this year that the UK uses and discards a staggering 8.5 billion plastic straws a year, giving an average of approximately 128 straws per person per year. That means that if we could get just 1% of the UK population using reusable straws there would be roughly 85 million fewer plastic straws being used each year.
Additionally, we want to provide products that are not only eco-friendly but that are also stylish and good value. Going eco-friendly need not require any sacrifice to aesthetic qualities and our straws are proof of this!
