There are lots of places where you can buy your own re-usable straw. If you can’t find one locally they are available online. Some of those suppliers provide bulk quantities of compostable straws others will sell you a stainless steel, ceramic, glass or bamboo straw. They even sell tiny brushes for cleaning your new straw! Mostly they are dishwasher safe also.
