A few years ago, the company LOLIWARE released the first (and, so far, the only) completely edible cup that provides a plastic-free drinking experience, and now they're coming out with straws, too. Created by industrial designers Chelsea Briganti and Leigh Ann Tucker with a team of food scientists and sustainability experts, the LOLISTRAW can either be eaten or composted: In fact, it goes from straw to soil in 60 days or less.
And get this: It can even be reused once dried. While it has the feel of a plastic straw and can last up to 24 hours in a beverage, it's made of a non-GMO seaweed-based material, contains natural flavor extracts, and gets its color from fruit and veggies.
The straw has already raised more than $80,000 on Kickstarter, and there are seven flavors in the works for you to take a big sip (or bite!) out of: citrus, vanilla dust, rose quartz, heliotrope, sparkling ocean, charcoal, and air. (Intriguing, right?) Currently, the straws are available for pre-order and are set to ship out in October—so it won't be long before you're drinking your iced coffees out of seaweed.
