Did you know that on average, every day Americans throw away 500 plastic straws? That statistic is hard to swallow (see what I did there?) considering plastic straws are nearly impossible to recycle, often ending up in landfills that spill into our oceans hurting our precious wildlife.
There are many options out there when considering a plastic straw alternative. Stainless steel straws are a fabulous alternative! Metal can be melted down and used over and over again. These straws are made of food grade, 18/8 stainless steel that is rust and scratch-proof, making them incredibly long lasting.
Don't forget a cleaning brush and reusable straw pouch to keep everything together when you're on the go!
These straws are handcrafted by Heather of Mulled Mind, a women owned business based in Massachusetts. Heather founded the Mulled Mind as a way to provide stainless steel straws ethically and responsibly made in the USA. She is passionate about the environment and making your experience the best it can be. (Check out the photo in the listing to see Heather hard at work!) Mary, the other half of the duo, is a chemist and makes all the straws. She works hard to make sure the straws are just right.
Note: As metal conducts heat, please use caution if you're trying to drink a hot drink using these straws.
Note: Always supervise children when using metal straws.
Cleaning: Wash well with cleaning brush and dish soap. These straws are dishwasher safe as well!
