When the government announced a ban on single-use plastics, a few years ago, Shaheen Jeenathally and her husband, Landry Manzi, saw a big business opportunity.
They only needed to be creative enough to come up with something eco-friendly, but not so ordinary. After doing their research, the couple started Jeena Trade Ltd, a company currently making straws which, once you’re done using, you can simply eat as a little snack instead of throwing them into the trash.
If you don’t want to eat them, you can throw them without guilt, because they will decompose. Their premium quality single-use straws last up to two hours in a drink and can be chewed for fun after use.
