The EU Plastics Regulation will come into force from June 2021. This means that single-use plastic such as plastic straws, for which there are already sensible alternatives, must be removed from the range. However, this ban on disposable straws poses major problems for social institutions, old people's and nursing homes and people with disabilities who are absolutely dependent on these plastic straws in their everyday lives and now have to find practical and, above all, bendable alternatives to disposable straws.
With the Turtleneck® Straw you have developed an optimal solution for social institutions and old people's and nursing homes. Because our reusable straw is the first bendable straw alternative that has all the positive properties of a plastic straw and replaces it identically .
Flexible reusable drinking straw
The Turtleneck® Straw is the flexible alternative to other straw alternatives. By using flexible stainless steel, its mouthpiece can be bent easily and infinitely and replaces the plastic straw in terms of function and feel . The use of food-safe stainless steel with the material quality seal DIN 1.4301 as well as its large diameter and the rounded edges of the mouthpiece ensure a long period of use and maximum safety . In this way we guarantee a high level of drinking comfort and a natural taste experience. This makes our drinking straw a comfortable straw alternative that can also be used flexibly by seniors and people with disabilities due to its optimal function and feel.
MAXIMUM SAFETY, MAXIMUM QUALITY
The Turtleneck® Straw is a high-quality and safe alternative to paper, pasta or glass straws. Due to our almost 60 years of experience in processing stainless steel, we only use stainless steel with the material quality seal DIN 1.4301 to produce our reusable straws. Our reusable straw is easy to bend and at the same time extremely stable, which is a prerequisite for safe bending of our reusable straw. In addition, it is food-safe, hygienically harmless and easy to clean. This guarantees that, despite its flexibility, our Turtleneck® Straw is more robust and durable than many other straw alternatives and that both cool and hot liquids can be consumed safely. Thanks to the use of high-quality, shatterproof stainless steel, it is also free of toxic chemicals, pollutants, petroleum and BPA and will not shatter if you bite the straw.
This makes it particularly suitable for people with disabilities and seniors.
Compared to common straws made of metal or glass, the Turtleneck®Straw has a large diameter for good water flow, so it can also be cleaned in the dishwasher without leaving any residue. The material of our straw alternative also contributes to hygienic cleaning: stainless steel is extremely robust and heat-resistant up to a temperature of 80 degrees. Germs and viruses are removed just as safely as drink residues.
1. Straighten the Turtleneck® Straw for residue-free cleaning
2. Place the drinking straws upright in the washing basket or in our washing basket specially developed for social institutions. For particularly “sticky” drinks, we recommend placing our stainless steel straw in a water bath shortly before rinsing. This means stubborn residues can be removed quickly and easily
3. Clean with the standard washing program
4. Allow to dry briefly and reuse
