Suck It Straws!
THIS IS THE LAST STRAW
Welcome to Suck It Straws! We believe there will not be a movement away from plastic straws /cups and towards glass straws and bamboo cups unless they are reasonably affordable, and that is exactly what our product is!
Plastics are slowly destroying our environment in many ways. They are one of the top ten items found on beach clean-ups, they are not biodegradable, instead they break down into tiny micro-plastics which end up all over the ocean, meaning that the fish we eat have most probably consumed a few micro-plastics, putting both the fish and ourselves at risk! Straws also cannot be recycled due to their size and composition, meaning they will be on this planet for a very long time.
We understand that it's hard to change old habits, but we all need to do our part in protecting this beautiful planet we live on, so try remember the impact your straw/disposable cup makes when you're off for a milkshake, coffee, cocktail, smoothie, to the cinema, to a market or to the beach for a picnic.
These glass straws are really simple to clean. They come with a specialized cleaning brush to ensure your ultimate hygiene standards are met. Or you can just pop them in the dishwasher when you're doing a load.
They come with snazzy pouches to keep your straw protected and clean. Plus they just look super cool.
Our glass straws are trendy, durable, dishwasher friendly, and safe to use.
Our bamboo travel mugs come with a twist on bamboo lid so no more drinking out of silicone lids (yuk!) and no more spilling.
Worried about leaving your glass straw or bamboo cup behind? Why not keep them in your car, because let's be honest, not many of us walk to places these days. Hang it from your rear-view mirror or leave it in the cup holder, that way you're far less likely to forget it.
Or just keep it in your bag. Then you'll always have your trusty Suck It Straw or Suck It Sipper by your side.

What We Offer
Suck It Straws
It all started on a beach in Bali, where Toni and I were having another one of our intense discussions on how we're destroying the planet. We then continued to talk about ways in which two average Joes like ourselves could try and make a difference.
After much research we decided that plastic straws were a great place to start, given their harmful environmental impact.
Cape Town is a fantastic city with humans that love to get involved in change and that's why we're starting here. It's a vibey city surrounded by 2 oceans and so even more reason for us to get involved in the glass straw movement here before spreading the love across the country!
Some of our clients:
University Of Cape Town
Royal Zambezi Lodge
If you would like to join us for walks along the beaches and promenades, whilst picking up all the litter along the way, like our Facebook Page 'Suck It Straws' to find out when the next clean-up is happening near you.
It involves like-minded people getting to know each other while doing their part to save the planet. It's a good way to meet people and just get out for a few hours. Lets clean our cities one beach clean-up at a time!
