Stainless steel straw set
Plastic straws are the most common plastic found in the ocean and because they’re uniquely sized, most recycling machines aren’t capable of recycling them, according to ETS Express.
As the second most common promotional product used by brands, there is rhyme to the reason when it comes to drinkware.
Nearly 90 percent of consumers own some kind of promotional drinkware, keeping them for at least a year or more, according to ETS Express.
For brands, drinkware generates over 1,400 impressions during the product’s lifetime! And best of all? The demand for these usable products is only climbing.
