Makers Daedra and Brian Surowiec are passionate about eliminating plastic waste. They’ve been at work since 2009 creating the straws that they consider functional art pieces that are better for the environment and better for people. There are no harmful chemicals in the straws and because you can see right through them, you know when one is really clean.The straws look lovely, but are far from delicate. Each is made in Michigan with super-tough, non-toxic borosilicate glass and is backed with a lifetime guarantee. How tough is it? This type of glass is used in the windows of space shuttles because of its strength and ability to handle extreme temperatures.
Sipping from a Strawesome straw feels special, too. Want to take it to go? Pop a straw into its very own (adorable) carrying case so you always have an eco-friendly alternative on hand. Switching to a glass straw might seem like a small thing, but it’s one small thing that can have a big impact.
