I bought a set of #reusable straws last summer, or the summer before then (can't remember). They've been great. The almost full pack of single use straws we still had is still mostly full.
I do want to replace them some time, but they're still holding strong.
In a decentralised social media it makes sense to host yourself. That's what we decided to do. This instance is run by two nerds, mostly for the why not of it. Feel free to join, and we'll hit you up with an "Hi, who are you?".
