Did you know that disposable plastic straws have a body count? Hundreds of thousands of marine animals die each year from plastic waste made up largely of straws. Save wildlife and promote your brand with the Eco-Sipper, a collapsible, reusable stainless steel straw that has a silicone sip tip for drinking comfort. Extended, it measures 8-1/2" and allows drinking ease with most glasses. Collapsed, it is easy to carry on your bag or pocket using the carry case made of a plastic and plant fiber blend that features a silicone strap. We recommend hand washing to extend the life of this FDA approved life saver.
