My kids love drinking out of straws. However, in the last couple years we have been making a strong effort to remove much of the kitchen plastic in our home. That has presented a problem for our kids and their desire for straws. Why have we been moving in that direction? Plastic exposes our family to BPA and phthalates. Both are toxins that don’t belong in our lives. Plus tons of plastic ends up in landfills every year. Some is recycled but much is not. Reusable straws are a great solution. Our straws no longer end up in landfills. They now love glass straws such as the straws from Strawesome. I will say I was nervous about glass straws at first but no matter what my kids have done the straws have not broken at all.
I love glass straws because I do a great deal of juicing, smoothies, nutriblasts etc… And after going through all the effort to make those healthy drinks, I really want to make sure I am enjoying it to the fullest and glass straws definitely enhance the experience. My daughter also drinks these drinks and loves the glass straws too.
We tried out the Going Green Straight Smoothie Straw. This is what it looks like:
Here are some facts on these unique glass drinking straws:
- Made of borosilicate glass tubing which is the strongest commercially available glass. This is the same glass that Pyrex® is made from.
- Borosilicate glass is also non-toxic, so you can feel confident when drinking hot or cold liquids that no toxins are leaching into your beverage.
- Annealed (slowly cooled to make it tougher and less brittle) so that it is dishwasher safe.
- Beautiful yet functional. The decorative version allows you to distinguish which straw is yours and also stops it from rolling on flat surfaces.
- Handmade in the USA
- 100% satisfaction guarantee. If you don’t love your straw, send it back for a full refund.
- Lifetime guarantee against breakage. If you break it we will replace it.
