Our Story

Plastic Alternatives LTD t/a The Last Straw® is a Bolton based company which was set up with the aim of supplying businesses an opportunity to provide customers an alternative to plastic straws as well as an alternative to paper or plastic straws.

Whilst we know that paper is better for the environment, people still see them as disposable and therefore contribute to a business’ litter footprint. Currently there are 5 ‘garbage patches’ polluting the world’s oceans and destroying the delicate ecosystem. Although straws are only a part of the problem, they are a part we feel we can do something about. It’s up to all of us to make the change and do our bit to reduce the incredible amounts of plastic that find its way into the world’s oceans and destroy sea life.

Whilst straws are our main product, The Last Straw® is able to provide other eco friendly items as well.
