Simply Straws – Classic 6 Pack Glass Straws
Glass is a safe material for reuseable drinking straws because it is nonporous and impermeable. This means that your drink will have no interaction, even when drinking hot liquids. As a result, the absence of interaction means that the product’s flavor is not affected, and the food will keep its strength and aroma.
Another advantage of glass is that it is recyclable. Not only does this help keep glass out of landfills, it also reduce the need for raw materials. Best of all, old glass can quickly be turned into new glass, which is just as high quality as the previous container. This makes these a great sustainable straw alternative to plastic.

So using bamboo ensures the continuation of its culture, an important step for sustainable products.
Providing better lives for those in need
These lovely straws are handcrafted by skilled artisans in Vietnam. And they also come with a bottle brush for cleaning (not dishwasher or microwave safe) and a handy pouch so you can take them with you on the go.
Can contain both hot drinks up to 158 Fº and cold ones too. Made in a fair and sustainable Vietnamese Artisan Workshop.
Vietnamese artisans have passed down their techniques for spinning bamboo and creating gorgeous, ecological products for generations. Unfortunately, there is also a lot of poverty and child labor in Vietnam.
The company’s founder left Vietnam at 13 years old after having begun working in the fields at the age of 8. Later, with her husband, they decided to create a fair trade company that values the painstaking handicrafts of the Vietnamese artisans while being dedicated to providing them with a better future.
Planning for the next generation
Prices are set by craftsmen and the company provides them with health insurance. Of course, child labor is not allowed on the products for this company and every artisan must bring their kids to school.
Finally, any natural materials used, must be replanted and CO2 emissions must be limited as much as possible. By buying one of these straws is about buying more than just an ecological product, it’s also about helping people lead better lives.
