You might do a double-take every time you use your ladybug straw, to be sure that a real ladybug has not just landed on your glass straw!
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 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 hundreds of times. Good for hot and cold beverages, these straws are dishwasher and microwave safe.
A portion of each sale goes to fund SeaSmart School, a Vancouver non-profit committed to getting young people excited about safeguarding our oceans. Your purchase also helps support Ocean Conservancy: working to bring people, science and policy together with a mission to counter the many threats to ocean health and sustainability. From protecting vital, vulnerable ecosystems through legislation, to enforcing accountability among leaders, Ocean Conservancy seeks solutions for a healthy ocean and the wildlife and communities that depend on it.
