THE LAST (PLASTIC) STRAW
JULY 17, 2018
A NEW WAY IN OUR CAFÉ
Café Kwae is introducing glass straws in store. This nifty introduction comes from the café’s bid to be more environmentally responsible and leave the Earth in a much better shape than we came to meet it.
PLASTIC VS. GLASS?
It’s all the fun of a plastic straw, with a lot less punch to the earth. These straws are eco-friendly and reusable, meaning a longer lifespan and many uses before it ends up in drains, bushes and in some extreme cases in water bodies where they pose serious health risks to marine life, who unwittingly mistake these plastic pieces for food.
Animals aren’t the only the ones at risk here. Single-use plastic straws can be just as harmful to humans. They contain BPA, a chemical compound used in the making of making of plastic straws, which has been proven to be linked to many chronic health conditions like cancer and even cosmetic concerns like the early development of wrinkles.

COME BY AND TRY OUT A GLASS STRAW
Being health conscious and environmentally responsible doesn’t have to mean adopting a whole new experience. It can be as easy as opting for a glass straw, or buying one for GH¢35 the next time you visit the Café.
