We’re fully aware that Ozbargain has had its fair share of not-so-good reusable straw offers posted, littered with some great Aussie straw jokes and comments, but we hope this deal's good enough to get the Ozbargain community thumbs up for something different in the straw category. If you’re not keen on any of the Zenify reusable straw features we list below, we’d recommend grabbing a bargain elsewhere on eBay or Aliexpress (and we’ve pulled together some links for those at the bottom, collating those flagged by our Ozbargain gurus from past deals)

——

Grab a Zenify Metal Reusable Straw Set in Rose Gold, Black or Assorted Colours with an additional Ozbargain 20% discount off the already discounted January launch price. We’ve also allowed the coupon to apply to the Zenify Bamboo Straw Sets again for anyone who missed out on the offer last October.

In order to save you time and research….

The key differences when you compare Zenify’s metal straw sets to any others on the market are:
* Our straight straws are 8mm diameter (not 6mm) which gives a great balance for both soda and smoothie use
* Our straight straws are 18cm - a more versatile length to use in your average home glass/cup (not unnecessarily long 21cm+ - notice all the photos of others have kids using supersized cups).
* Our straw cleaners are extra wide to make it easy to clean your straws.
* The wooden straw travel case which fits one straw and a cleaner.
* Our straws come in assorted colours. Plain silver stainless steel is very 2018.

Product Description

💚 SAY NO TO PLASTIC - Join the Zenify Earth zero waste movement to reduce single use plastic drinking straws around the world. Switch to metal straws for the best reusable alternative to harmful disposable plastic. Stainless steel straws last longer than bamboo straws, don’t go soggy like paper straws, isn’t as fragile as glass straws, is odourless unlike silicone straws and are ultimately recyclable. Reduce reuse recycle with the most popular alternative to single use straws.

💚 REUSABLE STRAWS WITH CASE - Your metal straw set includes a sleek wooden carry case, perfect for travel in a bag without worrying about a sticky straw. Whilst most straight straws naively boast 21cm oversized in length and 6mm thin width, our research from our zero waste community finds that something more practical to carry, store and use in a standard sized glass. This makes our 18cm straight straws with 8mm diameter a much more versatile size for everyday life in a bag.

💚 EASY TO CLEAN — Each pack comes with an extra wide straw cleaner, to make cleaning your straws easy. It also fits neatly inside the wooden travel case provided, so you can always give the straw a quick clean even when you’re on the move. We want to help you do your part to prevent waste and preserve mother nature.

Our Mission:

We want to provide eco friendly alternatives to products we all use on a daily basis to help protect and preserve our environment. We believe with the help of the right products and small changes to habits, as a community we can collectively bring about large changes to the global sustainability of our earth. Designed in Bondi, to protect our beautiful Australian beaches.

Comparisons:

Whilst eBay and aliexpress are naturally littered with straws, even if you’re lucky enough to find one that has a canvas bag and a cleaner, we haven’t found one with all the elements of our sets close to this price point. Also, of course, without waiting several weeks for delivery for overseas options.

eBay search HERE - Don’t be deceived by the $1 prices - those are a eBay trick to rank top for descending order of price. The product for $1 is JUST a straw cleaner.
Hat nod to Ju5t1N who flagged these on a previous Ozbargain straw deal - $7.95 previously for 10 pack, not coloured, no cleaner bag or case - AU shipping though

Aliexpress search HERE
Hat nod to PJC who flagged this other cheap option on a previous Ozbargain straw deal - $1.59 but 4x 6mm straws, not coloured, no bag or case, with 47 days shipping

    I'm not on board the 'metal straw' bandwagon at all, but upvoting this because of the amount of effort OP has put into his/her post. Well done! OzB needs more sellers like you.

    • +8 votes

      thanks mate. really appreciate the recognition.

    • yeah, agreed. i don't need a metal straw but this is a great post. good effort op +1

    • The problem I have with metal straws is that I unconsciously find the straw by moving the glass to my mouth until I hit my teeth with the straw. This was not a problem until i got metal straws and I wasn't able to unlearn that habit and didn't want to continue risking the dental health of my most visible teeth.

      I have seen that now some metal straws on aliexpress have a small silicone sheath around the drinking end of metal straws to solve this problem, so I guess I wasn't alone. So you could buy some silicone tubing from a homebrew supplier and make your own tooth protector for these straws if it is a problem.

    • the production and unsold units of these reuseable straws is going to cause as much carbon footprint impact and waste as just regular straws

      the biodegrable single use cardboard ones are probably the most decent middle ground

  • what metal s it? not stainless steel in food grade?

  • Bought! Thanks OP.

  • 8 pack novelty purchase. Thank you.

  • Also handy when trying to stealthily enter a building that has a moat

  • Everyone leaving the house soon.

    Phone. Check.
    Wallet. Check
    Keys. Check.
    Reusable cup. Check.
    Reusable bag. Check.
    Reusable straw. Check.

  • Bought to try as a saliva paper ball tube shooters!

    No need to waste pen bodies now.

    Thanks OP

  • What’s the pro and cons in bamboo vs metal?

    • +4 votes

      good question Itwo. here's a quick comparison:

      metal (recycle it once finished)
      +lasts longest of all reusable straw option
      - doesn't have as nice a feel on the mouth

      bamboo (compost it once finished)
      + natural feel
      - has a finite lifespan

      • Also, metal straws are unlikely to be eaten by Pandas, I occasionally run into this issue with the bamboo ones

  • Is the diameter on these suitable for bubble tea?

    • +2 votes

      it's 8mm for the straight straws, so i suspect that's a little too thin for bubble tea.

  • Upvote for effort

  • Great for lines

  • I wonder if in 10 years time we'll be counting the added dental costs of using straws like this as opposed to softer ones which are far less likely to damage your teeth.

    • +7 votes

      Yeah, probably a conspiracy. Metal straws are created by dental companies in the hope that we will smash them into our teeth.

      I'm sticking to plastic because because I don't like turtles and I'm scared for my teeth.

      • Hahaha I'm not going that far. But I've accidentally bitten a metal straw more than once, and the clank it makes on my teeth can't be good.

        On the other hand, it's still probably preferable to paper straws (to use with liquids? who had that bright idea?) that break down before my cup's half finished.

    • Do you use metal cutlery to eat?

      • The way I use a fork to eat is pretty different to how I use a straw.

        • The implication is that you can change the way you use a straw, so you don’t hurt yourself, as you presumably don’t with a fork because you are used to it.

          • @Meconium: I'm talking about how a straw is normally used and how a fork is normally used. I mean, do you keep a fork in your mouth for as long a duration as you would a straw?

      • In the coco pops ads Coco the monkey would scoop up some coco pops in a metal spoon, put the spoon inside his mouth, and then crunch down on it. Always creeped me out.

  • Only 1 carry case and 1 bag for each pack?
    Also how easy it is to clean the case and bag? Or are you supposed to clean it after each use and before putting it back in the case/bag?

    Thanks OP

    • +1 vote

      Do you really need more than one case and one bag for 4 straws?

      • Do 1 person really need 4 straws? I imagine I only need 1 or 2.. I could give the other straws and the case/bag set to others..

  • I personally have forgone the use of straws and don't really miss them, except for items bought while shopping, eg. Bubble Teas and milkshakes.

    I'm upvoting for two reasons, 1st is that it seems like a genuine deal for someone who's into this sort of thing…

    and 2nd, and probably more pertinently, OP makes excellent copy!

  • Best deal is the 8 pack! Thanks op.

  • Thanks OP, grabbed the 4x pack in Black.

    If these goes well, I might grab some of the Bamboo ones too.

    Cheers.

    limited quantity gone - deal set to expired.

    • Ah no, we've just finished a late breakfast with our grand-daughter and just said I need to buy some stainless steel straws as we used plastic to get the hull out of the strawberries and whilst it worked we decided that stainless steel would be better. :( Off in search I go.

    • More OP. More more more

    •  

      hey quick question to the store rep please.
      missed the Ozbargain discounted price.
      tried to order some now, but price is $7.95 AND it only allows me to order 1 pack of the rose gold per order.
      is there any way around this?
      i need to order a few packs of the rose gold, but don't want to have to pay delivery if i order one pack at a time.
      (current order i want to put through is >$49 so free delivery)

      suggestions welcomed.

      • I got one set discounted, but liked it so much bought 2x more at $7.95 each. There was a limit of 1 per order, but I just placed 2 separate orders. Free delivery with Amazon Prime, I would suggest signing up for the trial or buying it for a month.

  • Thanks OP!

  • Expired while I was checking out.

    Oh well.

  • I always miss out on the cool stuff :-(

  • What evidence is there that these straws are more environmentally friendly?

    The enviro cost of heating + detergent to wash them up, the eviro cost to deforest (for extra trees) or mine and smelt (for metal) not to mention the extra packaging does that outweigh the cost of a petrochemical (plastic) straw that is disposed of correctly to go straight to landfill?

    • Ok JV

      • No harm asking questions mate. It's very popular to ditch the straw - but I'm not quite convinced it has practical value - if it is better, great - if not, then it's actually worse for the environment AND has a convenience cost.

    • Plus, plastics can also be recycled after disposal.

      • are you sure?

        • What? Yes I'm sure plastics can be recycled.

          https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Plastic_recycling

            • @wangsk: I don't know what you're getting at. I mean, surely it's the composition of the plastic that determines if it's recyclable or not, not its shape.

          • @HighAndDry: I guess you aren't aware of there being a plethora of different types of plastics with a varying degree of recyclability?

            • @Hinee: Yes, types of plastic, not shapes of plastic. If you can make a plastic bottle that's recyclable, you can make plastic straws that are recyclable.

              • @HighAndDry: Not all plastic can be recyclable, they can technically be recycled but in the real world they are not possible to recycle.

                This link is very clear.

                https://blog.nationalgeographic.org/2018/04/04/7-things-you-...

                • @wangsk: Again - this is types of plastic. So answer me this - if you can have recyclable plastic bottles, why can't you have recyclable plastic straws?

                  Edit: Surprise surprise, they can be. Recyclers just don't - why not pressure them to start recycling them instead?

                  https://get-green-now.com/recycle-plastic-straws/

                  As it turns out, plastic straws can technically be recycled. The problem is that plastic straws are small, thin, and bend easily. This is a problem because they easily fall into the cracks and crevices of recycling machinery. Therefore, most recyclers do not accept plastic straws, and most straws that do make it to a recycling facility do not become recycled.

              • @HighAndDry: Size actually plays a massive part in the recycling process though.

                The facts about plastic straws
                Not surprisingly, plastic straws are one of the most common items found on beaches all over the world. These straws are manufactured from polypropylene, a by-product of petroleum which requires a large amount of energy and natural resources to extract and refine. Plastic straws may be used for only a few minutes, but their negative impact lasts for lifetimes.

                Why can't plastic straws be recycled?
                Unlike some soft plastics which can be recycled, plastic straws cannot be recycled. As they travel down the conveyor belt at your local recycling facility, small items like straws fall through the cracks. This means that straws sit in landfill for years or pollute our oceans and waterways, harming marine life. In the ocean, plastic does not biodegrade. Instead it simply breaks down into smaller pieces over hundreds of years. It is estimated that 8 million tonnes of plastic pollute our oceans every year.

                • @Hinee: So it's not that they can't be recycled (they can) but recyclers just don't.

                  In that case, instead of pressuring people not to use straws, why not pressure recyclers to just recycle them?

                  • @HighAndDry: Straws are one small piece in the overall puzzle of reducing single use plastics though. You're not really presenting any kind of actual argument other than "they don't do it and they should" which doesn't take any kind of practicality on board. Tiny items like this are clearly hard to separate and even harder to discern composition.

                    • @Hinee:

                      You're not really presenting any kind of actual argument

                      I thought my argument was clear enough: Plastic straws are recyclable.

                      • @HighAndDry: Okay sure. We'll leave practicality to the side then.

                        In the link I posted below they list some estimations:

                        Pubs polled used an average of about 90,000 straws per year. Across the 6,000 pubs in Australia, that's 540 million straws used by pubs alone.

                        Then add in fast food chains: there are 900 McDonald's restaurants across the country, serving more than 1.7 million people a day. If only half of those customers got a straw, that one fast food chain would be accounting for more than 850,000 straws a day.

                        Being completely realistic - you can't deny that a tiny fraction of these would ever end up making it to recycling. As I said, this is step 1 out of 1000 in reducing single use plastics with easy and very viable solutions available. I seriously encourage you to give ep2 of The War on Waste a watch.

    • Another thing to consider into your comparison is the actual environmental impact of the straws going into waterways.If you haven't already watched it, The War on Waste is fantastic and episode 2 goes into the issue well. I'd consider myself pretty green/left leaning and I was very surprised how much plastic straws were singled out and didn't quite get it until really looking into it.

      edit-
      This is pretty much the shortened text version of the episode

  • just sip the cup guys

  • so now on top of constantly needing to have grocery bags on me in case i do a random grocery shop, i now need to carry straws

    whats next
