It’s worth taking a moment to applaud you for getting this far. Because if you’re considering a pouch with which to carry a reusable straw or utensil, then presumably you are the owner or soon-to-be owner of said reusable cutlery (a straw is cutlery, right?). And if you’re now looking to travel with a bamboo straw or utensil for lunches, takeout, and beyond, then bravo! You’re stepping up to eliminate from your life some of the worst, most wasteful plastic products on the planet. Each day, Americans throw out 500 million plastic straws. So we applaud you for considering this pouch purchase. It’s a small, but important, difference-maker.
