Sending our welcome and congratulations to the state of Victoria, joining QLD and SA in the fight against Single Use Plastic. Victoria is to ban all Single Use Plastic from Restaurants, Bars and Public sale from 2023. It is estimated that each individual throws away 68kgs of SUP a year, 1/3 of that is Plastic Straws and Cups!! This ban is going to immediately make a difference, and this blog offers advice on alternatives.
Suck It Up Straws' founders Danielle Pardoe and Isaac Pene have a world first. No longer is allowing your establishment to become Eco-Friendly, Enviro-conscious, a costly exercise. To become more sustainable in our business practices and the environment we need to think more along the lines of Reuse rather than replace. If we can do it with cutlery, crockery and, glassware why would we not do it with straws? This theory got Danielle and Isaac dipping into their kiwi ingenuity and with the help of some Aussie Engineers, created a dishwashing rack guaranteed to clean over 100 Stainless Steel Straws with each load. Saving time, money, waste and the environment each time!
