str-awesome!!! glass drinking straws.

 I discovered a great business started by a mom, what's so great about it, is that she is using her talents and love for what she does at the same time she contributes to saving the environment and also our health. Its called strawesome

Strawesome is a company that makes GLASS  drinking straws!! Yes you read right, they are made of glass!! The only straws I have ever seen or heard of are always made of plastic, whether it be hard plastic or soft plastic, ITS PLASTIC!! Although nowdays companies are more aware of the dangers of chemicals used to make plastic and are going the safer route, glass is still always the better choice.  I make smoothies almost everyday for my boys and straws that are used over and over get yucky, hard to wash and mangled!! They are so hard to clean I end up using them only once then throwing them away!! Plus, when plastic is tampered with there is more of a chance of chemicals leaching and it being hazardous for your health. 
I decided to email the owner of Strawesome and see if she wouldn't mind me doing a review of her products for my blog and she said OK!!  I just received my "Big Daddy" bent smoothie straw yesterday, my son and I used it this morning and LOVE it! They are so easy to wash and fun to use, plus when you purchase any product from them, their is a no break policy. If your straw breaks, it will be replaced!! You cannot go wrong with that!! Also look no further for corporate gifts or wedding favors, Strawesome does that also!!
Here is a pic of the bent smoothie straw that I get to use!

Here are some other things that are so great about strawesome:

"Strawesome is a Michigan-based green company(started and run by a mom) with a commitment to health and the environment. We offer fun, safe, and reusable glass drinking straws to people of all ages."

Why a Glass Straw?
  • "Concern about plastic usage is at an all-time high. Glass drinking straws are one way to limit your exposure to toxins from plastics.
  • If you use straws a lot think about how many plastic straws you throw in to a landfill every year.  Including the instances you dine out at restaurants this number can be astronomical!  Being green has never been so easy.  Replace your disposable plastic straw with a glass straw and you can help save our planet from destruction.
  • Not only is it fun to drink from a glass straw but studies have shown that drinking from something more substantial than plastic may help you lose weight.  The feeling of glass on your lips will help you lose weight on your hips!
  • Strive to consume more water? Make it fun with a glass straw. 
  • Want to help your kids eat more fruits & vegetables? Make it fun with a green smoothie and a glass straw."
