Plastic straws are among the top 10 of the most commonly found litter on the beach, because around three billion plastic straws are thrown away every day after they have been used once.
After intensive research, the couple with the Founded in 2016 decided in favor of glass because of many convincing advantages (reusability, taste neutrality, easy cleaning and hygiene). Since entering the market in year 2017 So many HALM drinking straws have already been sold that HALM customers together now save more than a ton of plastic waste - every day.
