Why Australia is choosing to reuse and choose Glass Drinking Straws

Drinking a smoothie, milkshake, mixed drink or even iced coffee isn’t really the same without a straw… and when it comes to certain drinks, it’s simply not functional. But with typical plastic straws come problems- the fact of the matter is that plastic is bad for the environment. Yes, they can be recycled, but production results in harmful gasses being released into the atmosphere. Let’s say you have a family of four, and each person drinks a smoothie a day. In a year, your family alone is using 1,460 straws. These straws have to be manufactured, packaged and shipped, and each of those has an environmental impact.

The Advantages of Using Glass Straws in Australia

If you used an alternative such as one of the many glass straws available at RawBlend, you would never have to worry about using a plastic straw again. The product is stylish, functional and Eco-friendly. Simply rinse them off with hot water after each use and occasionally run some all-natural soap through them to reduce your carbon footprint that much more. Glass straws made come in many shapes, sizes and colours, and they make great gifts. Plus, your family could go from using 1,460 straws in a year to only using 4!

The Durability of Our Straws

Some people worry that glass used in these straws is breakable. What they don’t realise is that the straws sold at Raw Blend aren’t made from your typical glass. Our straws are manufactured in Colorado, USA by an Eco-friendly company that uses borosilicate glass (commonly known as Pyrex). This type of glass is four to six times stronger than normal glass. Each of our glass straws has been hand made and carefully designed to add a little bit of elegance to your beverage, and you don’t have to worry about dropping it- it can handle the fall.

Add a Little Personal Flair

These straws give you the chance to personalise your style. Everyone in your family can have their own colour glass straw to keep track of them and add a little bit of flair to their individual drinks. If you prefer bent but your spouse prefers a straight one, you can each purchase the style you would like to maximise comfort and customization. Don’t be surprised when people start asking about your unique straw, which is a great conversation starter and gives you the opportunity to spread your environmentally friendly message to others.
