Glass straws are a great choice when ditching plastic one-use straws. This pack comes with 3 curved, 3 straight, and a cotton cleaning wand.
Let's get this out of the way: A lot of people immediately fear cracking and shattering, but these straws are made from borosilicate, which makes it shatter-resistant, break-resistant, and usable in cold and hot temperatures. The more you know: Borosilicate is the main ingredient in everyone's grandmother's Pyrex dishes.
They offer plenty of environmental and health benefits. In addition to being extremely durable and tolerant to temperature changes, borosilicate is also non-porous, which means bacteria won’t get stuck in the glass and make you sick. It’s also hypoallergenic, making them safe for people with allergies and sensitivities. The other benefit of glass straws is that they are far more environmentally friendly. Traditional plastic straws are one-time-use, and cannot be recycled, so they wind up in landfills and our oceans. While one individual straw doesn’t create an environmental disaster, it’s the scale that creates an issue - in the United States alone, over 500 million disposable plastic straws are used and thrown away every year. Because you can wash and reuse glass straws, you won’t be contributing to the waste that comes with disposable plastic sippers.
But wait, there's more! There aren't any straw-related activities these straws can't do. They photograph beautifully, and add extra color and style to food photography.
