Did you know that there is a company in Milford that is making cool, reusable glass straws?
Check out Strawesome. They make lifetime guaranteed, reusable, and adorable glass straws. I ordered one for my friend who works on TV. She always uses a straw to keep her lipstick looking perfect, but she also hated contributing to pollution.
Problem fashionably solved.
Check out the Strawsome selection - they offer a Starbucks Venti glass replacement straw (so you can keep your addiction!) and a glass straw for your Camelback bottle. They have great options - regular or smoothie, straight or bent, and straws just for kids. They also offer a cleaning brush and a case so you can take your straw on the road.
My daughter loves smoothies so she is getting one in her Christmas stocking this year. Shhh .... don't tell her!
