Biodegradable drinking straws: The benefits

Drinking straws are recommended by dentists for children under five years old to help remove sugary liquids from their mouths without causing damage to the enamel. Straws can also be used to drink liquids in situations where the rim of a glass is not perfect.

Biodegradable drinking straws can be a great way for enamel protection and to help protect the environment. Every day, thousands of drinking straws around the globe are used. They can be replaced with biodegradable straws, which will reduce plastic waste dramatically.
