Plastic straws are a non-essential part of our lives, yet they cause enormous damage to our oceans, wildlife and environment as a whole. In the UK alone we use 8.5 billion of them a year - thrown away after less than an hour's use, they take around 500 years to decompose (and even then, they break down into microplastics which can be even more damaging to the ecosystem).
The good news is that these will soon be banned in the UK, so what better time to invest in a reusable straw! This bamboo straw is 100% natural, sustainable and biodegradable and reusable to your heart's content.

Reusable Organic Bamboo Straw
Plastic Phobia is a true passion project turned pioneering business - supplying a great variety of home essentials completely plastic free (including all of their packaging - such a joy!), they really enable easy and affordable switches to greenify your home and take care of the planet.
Plastic Phobia was started by Tom out of his uni student bedroom in summer 2018 - he wanted to make it easier for people to make eco conscious choices. His flatmates were using plastic straws at parties, when someone mention that steel straws existed - the rest is history!
Tom is careful to ensure full supply chains are eco friendly, and he always ships carbon neutral (he's planted over 1,500 trees as a result!). I'm really excited to be working with him.
