Researchers, including some from McGill University, have developed a drinking straw made of cellulose, the building block of trees and plants, which could be a big step in the race to replace plastic straws.
Cellulose is a renewable material and doesn’t taste like wet paper, they say.
What’s more, the organic material that they developed and called Cellophax could be used in a variety of other single-use products, like grocery bags.
