Reusable Straws! Product growth has been tremendous in reusable straws. What is the origin of this trend? A sea turtle's nose; no lie. In 2015 a marine biologist in Costa Rica made a video showing her team removing a plastic straw from a sea turtle’s nose cavity and that 8-minute video racked up over 38 million videos on YouTube. The outrage to the video’s content, along with the voice of millennial and Gen Z consumers embracing sustainable and eco responsible products has ignited the rise of reusable straws in our industry and re-ignites a desire for products made in our industry to bear a social responsibility to the environment.
