Strawesome Eco-Friendly Straw Giveaway & Review

                     Since childhood,  I have been hooked on straws. It doesn't matter if I'm drinking water, soda, or tea, I want a straw with my drink. My sweet husband doesn't even ask anymore, he knows I'm lost without my straw. So what do you do when your trying to make better choices for your family, by reducing waste? I figured out I was using at least 5 plastic straws per day. That really adds up if you figure out the number of straws sent to the landfill just by me each year.

           I discovered, Strawesome,  a Michigan-based green company that offers fun, safe, and reusable glass drinking straws to people of all ages. They are made from borosilicate glass tubing, the strongest glass available. Its also the same material used to make Pyrex products. The have several different sizes, colors and decorative straws to choose from. I selected the Double Orange Bubble Straw, the one you see above in the picture. Call me crazy, but I just felt so fancy using such an awesome straw from Strawesome!

              Strawesome, straws are dishwasher safe. The glass is also non-toxic so there is no chemicals leached into your beverages. The are handmade right here in the beautiful, U.S.A! They also come with a lifetime breakage warranty. If your straw breaks they will replace it. I can't tell you how happy I am to have discovered their company. A great product made by a wonderful company!.
