The combination of metal straws and short bamboo chopsticks (1/3-1/4 of the length of conventional chopsticks) not only avoids the use of disposable straws, but also saves a lot of wood (reducing the use of materials by 60% -75%), thus greatly reducing carbon emissions, environmental pollution, and saving countless lives.
