Im Obsessed With My Stainless Steel Straws

by John Weil June 18, 2019 2 min read

Stainless steel straws are everywhere lately, and for good reason! Single-use plastics like straws may only be used for a minute or two before being thrown away, ending up in oceans and littered across beaches (Stachowitsch, The Beachcomber's Guide to Marine Debris). According to a 2018 article from The Guardian, single-use plastics have become such a problem that governments are getting involved. Yikes.

Thankfully, SandStraw has some super cute stainless steel straws, which means no more plastic or paper straws for me! They also donate 10% of their profits to the animal of my choice, which makes me feel even better about switching over to stainless steel. I love the color options and the convenient carry bag, which I can easily toss into my purse or beach bag. Each pack of straws even comes with a free cleaning brush! 

The Wave Pack is the best pack to start with if you want a variety of color choices. This is the one I picked because I like coordinating my straws with my drink or sometimes even with my beach gear if I'm planning to take pictures to post on social media.

I love the feel of sipping a cold drink through a stainless steel straw. I also don't have to worry about my margarita tasting weird because stainless steel doesn't change the taste of my drink. It's just so much more satisfying than drinking through plastic or paper straws!

Stainless steel straws are easy to clean and you can reuse them forever. Unlike glass straws, they won't break. And with all the color options, stainless steel straws are not only great for the environment, but they can also be a great stylish addition to your look.
