I’m gonna cut right to the chase. Have you heard of Strawesome? They are seriously AWESOME with a capital “A”! I use straws on a daily basis. I find that I actually drink more water when I drink through a straw. But I don’t like the skinny straws so I’ve been spending more money on the wider straws (similar to the size of those at McDonald’s – they hold more in one straw).
My plastic straw-buying days are over thanks to Strawesome!
Strawesome straws are reusable glass straws. If you were like me when I first heard of them, I thought I’d get a drink and a shard of glass. Not the case (duh, that would be really bad). Strawesome straws are hand-made in the company’s Michigan workshop. Their motivation for making these awesome straws came from a commitment to health with less exposure to toxins in plastic straws. Strawesome straws are toxin-free – there are no BPA’s or phthalates!
Another bonus in using Strawesome straws – you are saving the environment! I cannot even begin to think how many straws I’ve used over the past year alone. I know they all end up in a landfill. Now I can save the environment and have the perfect straw for drining my water, and smoothies. Since the straws are wider, you can sip your smoothie or milkshake without sucking your brains out (or what feels like it sometimes with the skinny straws). Nice visual, eh? :)
These are going to be great to keep in my purse for going to all of the extra-curricular activities. They will also be a great gift for my friends and nieces/nephew who have absolutely everything! There are so many cute designs to choose from so there is something they will all like. Plus, the younger ones will think that having their “own” personal straw is pretty cool.
