739 results about "Drinking straw" patented technology

A drinking straw or drinking tube is a small pipe that allows its user to more conveniently consume a beverage. A thin tube of paper, bamboo, stainless steel, or plastic (such as polypropylene and polystyrene), or other material is used by placing one end in the mouth and the other in the beverage. A combination of muscular action of the tongue and cheeks reduces air pressure in the mouth and above the liquid in the straw, whereupon atmospheric pressure forces the beverage through the straw. Drinking straws can be straight or have an angle-adjustable bellows segment. Drinking straws are usually intended as a single-use product and several countries, regions and municipalities have banned plastic straws to reduce plastic pollution. Some companies have voluntarily banned or reduced the number of plastic straws distributed from their premises.

Once the container has been opened, one or a plurality of disk-like-bodies or geometrically shaped bodies are removed from within the cap and utilized to hold a drinking straw in place above the rim of the said container while in use. The length of the straw above the container rim is adjusted within at least one said disk-like body or geometrically shaped body to suit the user. At least one flexible disk-like body or geometrically shaped body is also removable or extendable to hold a drinking straw both inside and outside of the drinking container. After use, the straw and disk-like body or geometrically shaped body is discarded or put back into the container cap for resealing. At least one extended disk-like body or geometrically shaped body will also be utilized by the manufacturer to install and store a straw within the container for the consumer's use.
