Taipei, Taiwan (Merxwire) – “Morgen UiU collapsible straw” brings a new choice of convenient plastic reduction for the beverage family! UiU is made of medical-grade platinum silicone and 316L stainless steel. This patented technology creates UiU with both environmental protection concepts and aesthetics. It is lightweight, convenient, fast to use, and capable of high-temperature sterilization. It can be taken with you in your pocket, completely changing the public’s stereotype that environmentally friendly products are inconvenient to carry.
Single-use plastic products have posed a crisis to the ecology, and the waste seriously pollutes the sea. According to reports, it is estimated that about 8.5 billion straws are found scattered on beaches of the world. The type of plastic products may be inserted into the nostrils of sea turtles, jam the beaks of seabirds, and be eaten by fish, thereby posing a severe threat to the ecology.
In recent years, campaigns of plastic reduction are promoted globally, and various environmentally-friendly straws are popular in the market. As indicated by surveys of environmental-friendly straws for users, most of the hard straws on the market are made of glass or stainless steel, which are difficult to carry and given with safety issues. Of silicone straws we see often, they are prone to be stained with dust and hair, and not easy to poke through the film. As for UiU, it has made of 316L stainless steel for its end-hole, in combination with transparent silicone, so that any dirt at the pipe wall is clearly seen and easy to clean. Given with its heat-resistant silica, there won’t be any concern about releasing chemical poisons even if with high temperature disinfection. as pointed out by a backer from the crowdfunding platform – “There is no need to re-adapt, and I can use the UiU environmental-friendly and portable straw in the most intuitive and easy way. Besides, its composite material design has almost made up for the risk and inconvenience with those commercially available products.”
