I LOVE Straws!!! I'm not even gonna lie... I need straws and I don't want to drink anything without a straw. Obviously, I'm obsessed with straws. Up until recently, I knew of two types of straws: plastic straws and the cardboard/paper straws they serve at Ted's Montana Grill. Both of which are disposable and only good for one use. Once I became a Pinterest Fanatic, I learned there were really cute decorative paper straws out there, but again - these are disposable and only good for one use. Although these are super cute, unless you are throwing a party, these are pricey and not practical. Then my sweet friend Sara told me about Glass Straws. Glass Straws had never crossed my mind and I couldn't wait to try them out.
I was so excited with the terrific assortment of straws I received from GlassStraws.com. I got a straw for shorter glasses, a bent straw for very tall glasses, a standard size straw and a wider straw for smoothies. After I finished gushing over them, I simply placed them in the dishwasher to prepare them for use. Yes, the dishwasher! I am so thrilled that these are reusable and incredibly easy to clean.
I am really excited to put my smoothie glass straw to use, too. I have no doubt that it will be just as fabulous as all the rest.
I'd like to share are a few facts about PLASTIC straws:
- Plastic Straws can not be recycled.
- They are meant for one use.
- Most Plastic Straws contain BPA.
- You can't put them in the dishwasher.
Here are some facts about the GLASS straws from GlassStraws.com:
- Glass Straws are reusable!
- They can be used in the Dishwasher and Microwave.
- They are hypoallergenic and 100% non toxic.
- You can use them in drinks of any temperature.
- You only have to make one investment.
There's truly no comparison, Glass Straws are the way to go! I couldn't be happier that I never have to buy straws again. If you are ready to make a small one time investment for glass straws, then I highly recommend visiting GlassStraws.com.
