Using Glass Straws - A simple way to help the Environment

Updated on July 13, 2011

I love these Glass Drinking Straws!

Many people are concerned about the plastics usage being at an all time high. But did you know that new evidence suggests that plastics in our diet has been the cause of a many health problems in people. One simple way for people to ingest less plastic is by using a glass straw rather than a plastic straw. The use of glass drinking straws is that they don't leach toxins into food as you drink.

A glass drinking straw is not only environmentally friendly. Think about it, Each time you use a glass straw it equals one less plastic straw ending up in the landfill. That may not sound like much but when you consider that one glass straw replaces thousands of plastic straws over your lifetime, it is mind boggling. Think of the impact you are making to the environment. By using your glass drinking straw daily it adds a feeling of beauty to your life. And lets face it, these glass straws are so classy and stylish.

      They are actually very durable. But I wouldn't wash them in the dishwasher wear they are constantly banging against other items. Thanks for the comment Joyce.

      This is maybe a dumb question :-) but how durable are the glass straws. I mean yes they are glass so I'm sure breakable but just how careful do you have to be? (I'm a klutz.)

      I'm trying to buy one of these at the local stores. They can't provide any; only plasics.
