The Taiwan Ministry of Health and Welfare of the Executive Yuan announced that from July 2019, in for major places: public departments, public and private schools, department stores and shopping centers, and fast-food restaurants (about 8,000 businesses) shall not provide single-use plastic straws for in-house customers. There are various alternatives to plastic straw such as stainless-steel straws, glass straws, silicone straws, bamboo straws and so on, which are reusable straws. And for single-use, there are options such as paper straws, sugarcane straws, and so on. Silicone straws are a better choice than those made of stainless steel and glass because of the transparency, softness, and durability.
What is silicone?
The raw materials of silicone are mainly from natural ores. Food grade silicone that was extracted with high-purity is plasticizer and bisphenol A free, non-toxic, odorless with high and low temperature resistance, which is 100% safe to use and eco-friendly. Silicone consists mainly of silica, which is an amorphous product made of sodium silicate and sulfuric acid in silica. It is made into granular or beaded form after washing and processing minerals that exist in the nature. Due to its great chemical stability with high safety, non-toxic, and non-corrosive, silicone has been approved by the US FDA for use in the food and pharmaceutical industries. For example, the material of pacifiers is silicone.
Do not misunderstand silicone ≠plastic
Silicone products became popular about more than a decade ago, but are often mistaken as plastic products. Silicone products were created to replace polluting plastics and rubbers. The differences are:
- Plastic and rubber products release toxic substances when heated, have short lifespans, and they become hard and brittle after using them for a period of time.
- The raw material of silicone is mainly from natural ore, which can withstand high temperature of 230ºC, does not contain plasticizer and bisphenol A, is 100% eco-friendly that is safe and durable, and can greatly reduce resource consumption.
