Finding plastic alternatives
With the deteriorating environment of the earth, mankind has gradually realized the harm caused by plastic waste in this world. Many countries and localities have faced this problem squarely and promulgated and implemented a series of laws and systems to reduce pollution. Among them is the ban on plastic bags, and the use of plastic straws is also prohibited. Guests who eat in restaurants are prohibited from actively providing straws to guests unless they need to use straws.
Before issuing the plastic ban, the United Kingdom sought the opinions of the broad masses of the people, and the vast majority agreed to ban plastic straws. After that, the industry plastic substitutes industry entered a new stage. The ban on plastic straws, which should have been officially implemented this year, has been postponed due to the impact of the epidemic and the spread of the disease at the beginning of the year.
Environmental protection is being promoted all over the world, and people’s awareness of environmental protection is gradually increasing. Therefore, there has been an industry of plastic substitutes, hoping to enable more consumers to change their attitudes, give up the use of traditional plastics, and use environmentally friendly plastics.
An environmental straw company called Stroodle specializes in environmental straws. This company made edible straws with wheat and water. This straw is not a kind of durable. It will not melt in water. It is similar to the use of plastic straws. It can also be eaten without waste or garbage. This is consistent with the original intention of the company to create environmentally friendly products and keep people away from plastic products.
The development of the Stroodle company was affected by the ban on plastic straws, which promoted the production of environmentally friendly straws and promoted the rapid development of the company’s business. The founder of this company seized the opportunity, and because of the concern about the ban on plastic straws, his products have also received widespread attention. He hopes that his products can be used all over the world to replace plastic straws.
How to persuade people to consume and use replacement straws is also a problem. Company investors say that they not only buy straw but a story. Emerging products always attracts attention and become a topic of discussion. Straw is the first step for him to guide people to environmental protection. In the future, other products may appear to replace the current plastic products, change the dependence of humans on plastic products, and change people’s living conditions step by step. This is good and represents the progress of the society. After all, we cannot always ask for nature, nor can we always hurt the earth, and we will break the only environment in which we now live.
The current society lacks such companies, and few companies can achieve the purpose of protecting the environment. There should be more such companies to develop environmentally friendly products, lead people to protect the environment, and mitigate the harm of plastic waste to the earth.
