Even though a penguin would probably prefer cold beverages, you can enjoy both cold and hot beverages with your Glass Sipper penguin 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.

Options:
• 10" straw 
• Kit: includes the straw, a cleaning brush, and a carrying case made from 100% Romanian-manufactured hemp.

🌱Did you know?
Over 500,000 plastic straws are used and thrown away in the USA every single day BUT each glass straw could last for years, eliminating the need for all of those single use plastic straws.
