eightysix Grass vs Bamboo, Glass, or Metal
eightysix Grass vs Wheat
Generally speaking wheat straws are too narrow to properly enjoy a drink unless you use two, are not functional enough to drink a frozen, and if you’re behind the bar, they’re too fragile to stir a drink. While being natural by-product of wheat production can definitely be seen as a positive, large-scale industrial grain farming ravages eco-systems through the use of heavy pesticides and fertilizers among many other environmental issues.
eightysix Grass vs Paper
As everyone knows, paper tastes terrible and can only be used for a very short period of time because it dissolves so quickly. It also requires fresh raw tree resources and is manufactured with toxic glues, coatings and colors which prevent it from being recycled or composted. We’re all about saving the turtles, but it shouldn’t have to come at the expense of our forests (or our taste-buds).
eightysix Grass vs Bioplastics
Bioplastics require vast amounts of farmland and plant material to be produced, don’t break down unless in increasingly specific compost environments, and should they actually make it into the said environments (which is rare), they make soil and water more acidic, potentially polluting both land and ocean.
