The straws are made from reusable sugarcane fiber, which is not only a natural source for the material but is also biodegradable.

When I read the title, I was going to make a smart alec comment. But this actually looks quite interesting. I do like the direction the ad is going.

Ship this all over the world ASAP!!

The amount of trash that can be diverted with just these straws would be astronomical.

The big question is cost, if it's too expensive it will be hard to convince all the companies to switch. I remember watching a shark tank episode on somebody pitching sustainable bamboo chopsticks. In the end, even though they liked the idea, because it cost even just a few cents more than the traditional disposable chopsticks, they thought the uptake would be poor.
