5 Reasons to Choose the NEW Silikids Portable and Reusable Straws

Posted by on 5/13/2019 to Product Updates
It's time for slushy drinks and summer fun! Usually, when we buy that ice cold slushy drink or make one at home in the blender, we use a plastic straw for that massive size cup of cold treat... and there's been a growing awareness regarding the environmental impact of all of those plastic straws thrown away.  But now Lagoon Baby has the perfect straws to help you beat the heat!  Here's 5 reasons you should choose Silikids Portable and Reusable Silicone Straws!
5 Reasons to Choose the NEW Silikids Portable and Reusable Straws - Lagoon Baby Blog

1.) Silikids Portable and Reusable Silicone Straws save the sea creatures.
Plastic straws don't degrade or decompose.  At best, they eventually sort of crumble and end up in the ocean as microplastics.. which end up in the fish we eat.  Every time you use your Silikids Portable and Reusable Silicone Straw, you prevent a little more waste going into the landfill.

2.) Silikids Portable and Reusable Silicone Straws reduce recyling.
Even if you are awesome about recycling... all of that recycling has to go somewhere and it costs money to process.  Canada is amazing with having recycling programs in most regions... but part of living greener is reducing and reusing.  By using the Silikids Portable and Reusable Silicone Straws, we're reducing our consumption of single use items and reusing them.  Canada produces so much recycling in our blue bins that a lot of it used to end up being sent to Asia... which means it's not really getting turned into new things all of the time.  That makes it even more important that we reduce the need to recycle!

3.) Silikids Portable and Reusable Silicone Straws save money.
We already know that Canada's recycling programs are pretty awesome in theory... but what you might not know is that the cost of running these programs are increasing as the value of recycled materials drops.  That means that we pay taxes for all of this recycling, and as the costs increase... so do our costs.  Canada spends billions of dollars on recycling every year, and that cost gets passed on to us.  So when we choose reusables, we're helping Canada save!

4.) Silikids Portable and Reusable Silicone Straws are convenient.
These silicone straws fold up into an included little tin that will easily fit in a backpack, diaper bag, or purse! The tins are no bigger than a tin of mints.  Simply pull the straw out of its tin and it will unfold into shape... and it's long enough for a 32 ounce cup!  They're also dishwasher safe for easy clean up.

5.) Silikids Portable and Reusable Silicone Straws are FUN!
These long straws are bendy to fold up in their colourful tins. Each straw is the same colour as its tin, so you or your kids can use the straw colour that best fits the user's personality. 

Silikids Portable and Reusable Silicone Straws are new to the Lagoon!  Order yours now!
