Too many plastic straws. Too much guilt. Finally, a solution.
Our glass straws are made by a glass artist in Vancouver, BC. Frustrated with the mess of plastic straws in the world, not to mention the guilt from using all of those plastic straws, she was inspired to create a solution. She's committed to ridding the world of plastic straws and replacing them with reusable, toxin-free, environmentally friendly and fun glass drinking straws.
Each straw is made by hand using an ancient technique called lamp-working. The critters and designs are made by melting, then fusing, colored glass onto clear-glass straws with a 2000 F degree torch. Made of only the highest quality borosilicate glass from the Czech Republic, the same glass used to make Pyrex glassware, they are natural, strong, toxin-free and can be used 100’s of times. Good for hot and cold beverages, the straws are dishwasher and microwave safe.
