Glenn tried re-usable bamboo and metal straws which were proven to be unreliable and difficult to clean. And while paper straws were heading in a more sustainable direction, they just wouldn’t last the distance in a drink (especially for those slow sippers out there!).
He finally thought he had the solution with pasta straws, but traces of gluten can leach from the straw into the drink – so they wouldn’t suit everyone.
Two years later after returning to Melbourne, Australia, Glenn has taken his passion for sustainability and quality to create the perfect straw made from gluten free, all natural ingredients, with the quality of plastic with zero waste – The Only Straw.
Now with the Australian government having also realised a need to address single use plastics in our environment there is a positive change in the community. The Only Straws‘ alternative can be widely used and implemented to a more eco-friendly, sustainable environmental product for everyone to enjoy.
