Straw Guardian / Straw Box

Straw Guardian

This design concerns about consumer's health while using straws in fast food restaurants. When people fetch straws from the existing straw box after payment, their fingers will touch the part of straw which is inserted into drinks. So we move the notch from middle to the right. It leads users to take the part of the straw which will neither be inserted into the drink nor into the mouth. Use a different color to define the touching part. Shorten the groove so that users can't access other straws which shall be used by others. Widen the press plate to prevent customers from touching the part of straw which shouldn't be contaminated.
