Reusable Straws Spiking in Searches

With cities and corporations increasingly moving towards removing plastic straws from their shelves, reusable straws are on the rise on Etsy.

San Francisco is the latest city to propose a ban on plastic straws, and the momentum behind the movement doesn’t seem to be slowing down any time soon. Etsy sellers are offering creative options for eco-conscious straw-sippers, and shoppers are taking note: In the last six months, searches for metal straws have increased 205%, while searches for plastic straws have dropped 11%, compared to the same time last year. And, from hand-stamped metal to glass-blown straws, there are over 1,900 results for “reusable straw” on Etsy, so there’s tons of options for the eco-friendly:
Copper bent metal straws, Ceramic drinking straw, Glass cluster straws, Rainbow metal straws
