Strawesome is SUPER awesome!
I was very pleased to have the opportunity to review one of these beauties, they truly are a piece of art. Strawesome was founded in 2009 and is a family-owned and operated Michigan-based green company.
So, when Strawesome sent over this gorgeous glass straw, I was over the moon! I was actually introduced to Strawesome through one of my buddies Good Girl Gone Green through Strawesome’s Facebook and I fell in love at first sight!
Yes, it does happen!
So, why glass straws?
- For one, glass straws are toxin free! No BPA, harmful phthalates, etc.
- You are helping our dwindling Mother Earth by reducing the amount of plastic straws you send to the landfill.
- According to Strawesome, The feeling of glass on your lips will help you lose weight on your hips!
- Studies show that drinking from something more substantial than plastic may help you lose weight.
- Perfect to bypass those coffee, tea, red wine stains.
- Made from Borosilicate glass, which is the strongest commercial plastic.
- It is also non-toxic.
- Dishwasher safe.
I have never been a breakfast person.
Either I’m not hungry, not in the mood–whatever it is. But, I make green smoothies for myself, Hubby and the girls to get a nice little boost in the mornings. Pair it with a handful of nuts and they are getting the benefits of spinach, cucumber, blueberries, essential fats and more!
I absolutely can’t describe how it is to drink from a glass straw, it’s awesome. The thickness of the smoothie is perfect.
Well, we found a local reseller and we bought one for each of us and the girls absolutely love their smoothies any time of the day!
Pictured above is my breakfast smoothie, I chose the Springy Barely Bent Long Straw and I love it, it has the perfect arch and I swear it makes my smoothie taste even better.
I LOVE IT!
I adore how decorative this straw is, it’s got a coral coil, teal and white dots! This is no surprise because all Strawesome straws are handmade in the US and what’s even better is that they come from my neighbors across the bridge, Michigan USA!
They make decorative straws, non-decorative straws, customized straws, colored straws, bent straws, bubble tea straws, kid straws, skinny straws and much, much more! They also have cleaning brushes and carrying cases for on the go!
Daedra is the artist behind it all and you can “Meet the Artist”, here.
I’m very happy to be able to making a small but impacting change in our home and everywhere we go, all while having fun and helping the planet!
And you can too by making the change to glass!
