A new reusable straw corrects a key design flaw found in most reusable straws currently on the market. The straw, called One Bubble Straw, has a seam running from top to bottom that can be opened for easy cleaning. Once you’ve cleaned it using a standard sponge—or even just a paper towel—it rolls back into place.
一款新的可重复使用的吸管弥补了市场现有的大多数可重复使用吸管的一大设计漏洞。这款吸管名为One Bubble 吸管，有一条从上到下的接缝，打开之后很容易清洗。用标准海绵或仅仅用纸巾清洗过后，就能重新卷成原状。
The straw is from Green One Lab, a sustainable product design and development incubator out of The Hong Kong Polytechnic University. The Lab has launched a Kickstarter for the straw, and plans to ship in October.
The straw has a few added bonuses for bubble tea drinkers. It’s extra wide to fit those boba pearls, has a beveled edge so that it can puncture plastic, and is sturdier than similar silicone straws that bend when you try to punch through a plastic seal.
The straw is, unfortunately, made from plastic. But it’s foodsafe and 100% recyclable—and that’s after you wear it out, which could take a while. It can be opened for cleaning at least 1,000 times. It’s also dishwasher safe.
