Fourteen promising drinks inventions unveiled in 2018

Re-usable and recycled metal straws

An American bike manufacturer decided to help the drinks industry reduce is plastic usage after it decided to sell straws made from leftover tubing.

Firefly, which is based in Boston, Massachusetts, started selling titanium straws on 24 July in three sizes — five, eight, and 10 inches, but sold out of them after less than 24 hours.

“We have used up 7.5 years worth of titanium scrap in less than 24 hours,” said a blog post on the manufacturer’s website.

The straws, which can be shipped oversees, are made to order, meaning you can pick the length, the color and whether you want it bent or straight

“As we generate more scrap that can be turned into more straws we will make these available again and broadcast their availability.”
