You’ve probably seen these around, even if you weren’t sure what they’re called: shaker cups or bottles are usually BPA-free plastic or metallic drinking containers, which might look somewhat like just a regularstainless steel bottle. They usually have a flip lid that attaches tightly to prevent leaks or spills, and might come with a built-in straw or a simple flap opening.
People have been using straws for a long time (some sources say 6 or 7 thousand years!), so there are some great advantages. When thinking about what makes straws useful, there are two angles we can consider: practical, and healthy.
Straws are an easy way to get more water, and they can be reusable, washable, and safe! There are various benefits tousing straws, as they can be more hygienic and safer. Drinking beverages through a straw is also easier, encouraging you to drink more.
