US based 'FinalStraw' getting ready to launch the world's first foldable metal straw
FinalStraw is a new Kickstarter project to fund a collapsible, reusable drinking straw, made from stainless steel and medical grade tubing. It comes in a (recycled plastic) case, that fits on a keychain.
The product is BPA free, dishwasher-safe, and comes with its own squeegee, ensuring the inside of the straw is always fresh and clean. According to the campaign, one FinalStraw can save 584 plastic straws.
A pledge to the campaign costs USD 20, which comes with one straw, case and squeegee. In less than a week, the Kickstarter campaign has already raised USD 495,000, smashing its USD 12,500 goal. Estimated delivery is November 2018. More at Fashion Journal, and tip of the hat to Bringo spotter Nina Hiukkanen!
