Glass Straws Help Keep You Green And Refreshed

glass straws

In an effort to be more green, many of us have started toting reusable plastic or aluminum water bottles around with us instead of buying bottled water on the go. Choosing reusable items over products that have to be recycled is one of the best things we can do for our planet. Recycling is good but not having to recycle at all is even better.

Now, straws (yes, those one-use items commonly made of plastic that usually end up in landfills) have gone green too! Glass straws are reusable, beautiful and all the rage right now. Several glass straws on the market are “designer” in nature with fun, festive and creative stylings making your glass straw unique and lovely.

Glass straws also come in all different sizes, making them perfect for whatever beverage you’re drinking: fresh juice, cocktails, sodas, smoothies, milkshakes, iced coffee or iced tea.

One Response to Glass Straws Help Keep You Green And Refreshed

  1. I got some metal straws (rather than glass) recently. I was so excited about them, but the one drawback is that I really miss the “squishability” of a plastic straw. The metal straws are cold and hard and you can’t squish them with your lips as you drink. Didn’t realize I loved this so much…but I do :)
