A seaweed-based straw than you can eat or let degrade in your backyard. The way to get our community involved and the way to get the world excited about this new innovation is to embrace the fun. They began by making fruit leather like cups that could be chewed on after you were finished with your beverage. These Lolistraws are seaweed based on a material that resembles plastic. They come in a variety of colors and flavors, with a lot of them having added nutrients. The company is targeting venues where plastic straws are currently being used at record volumes, like fast food venues, stadiums, coffee shops, and juice bars. One will be just a run-of-the-mill plastic straw, while others will be colored and flavored. If you don’t want to eat the straw, it’s compostable. If the straws somehow end up in the ocean, they will dissolve.
