The reusable stainless steel straws from ForEVA Straws are a must have, and perfect to carry with you while you are on the go!
We recently attended the launch of new and combined Shop Zero & Flourish Bistro. Shop Zero is a zero waste, plastic-free lifestyle store with vegan pantry essentials and speciality foods. Flourish Bistro is a vegan, plant-based, gluten and refined sugar-free bistro. For a green vegan chick like me, it is a combo made someplace totally wonderful.
Early in the evening of the launch, my boyfriend made a joke, saying that he would win a prize that night, and he did! He won 2 reusable bent stainless steel ForEVA Straws in a cute little drawstring bag!
Now we all know that single-use straws suck (To read more about why see post here) But there is something great about drinking with a straw. At Shop Zero there is a great variety of reusable straws, from glass to stainless steel. Straight, bent, rose gold, rainbow, they stock them all.
Why use stainless steel straws?
Before these gift straws, I had never used a stainless steel straw. Not only do they look great, but they are made of food grade stainless steel, which means they are safe to use again and again. They are also are super easy to clean, with a small straw cleaning brush, (even though they are dishwasher friendly). They are strong, durable and great to drink with. Lastly, they are a comfortable size, and they don’t leave a weird taste in your mouth, which I have noticed with the bamboo straws. So far, we have used them for smoothies and juices, both of which have been finely blended. Because our new stainless steel straws are quite slim, I don’t think they would work so well with chunkier smoothies.
Where to buy?
Shop Zero is located at 403 Albert Road, Woodstock, Cape Town. They are open Monday to Friday from 9 am to 5 pm & on Saturday from 9 am to 3:30 pm. You can also purchase the reusable stainless steel straws on their online shop.
