The hundreds (or thousands) little pieces of ropes used to bundle our rye crops during harvest! ๐ŸŒพโ โ 
โ โ 
Initially we wanted to reuse them for a different purpose, but we still haven't found the right way to do so! Any suggestions?โ โ 
โ โ 
(they all have a node and have been cut with a scissor, which makes the reuse part a bit more challenging!)โ โ

๐Ÿ‘ฟ Anyone here still believe paper straws are a good option to replace plastic?โ โ 
โ โ 
Did you know:โ โ 
๐Ÿ˜ฒ some of them are lined with a plastic or PLA liner inside to make them last longer in drink. That also means they are non recyclable.โ โ 
๐Ÿ‘Ž for the paper only options (1,2 or 3Ply thickness), they are a nightmare to recycle as they are so small they always fall between the gaps of recycling machines. On this photo it seems they also fall on the floor even before reaching the bin... โ โ 
๐Ÿฅคhow do they stand together? glue of course! yumโ โ 
๐Ÿคข they soften after only 10mins while also disintegrating in your mouth while you drink and giving a lovely taste โ โ 
๐Ÿ˜ฌ should I talk about how they are manufactured in Asian factories?โ โ 
โ›”๏ธ elevated concentrations of mineral oils and chlorinated substances have been found in 12 different types of paper straws (source: The Office for Consumer Protection and Veterinary Affairs for the Canton of St. Gallen in Switzerland) โ โ 
โ โ 
So yes they cost 0,02c and are the cheapest option right now, but are they really doing a great job as an alternative?โ โ

You can clearly see how relieved I feel after these 100+ long sorting hours. That job was finally done!โ โ
