HOW TO USE & CARE
You can clean your straw in the dishwasher or with the cleaning brush, if you are the dishwasher. If you rinse the straw right after using you usually don't even need the brush.
Just like other glassware this glass can break, but it takes more than you think to break this glass because they are made from the strongest commercially available glass. You’ll even find this glass in the windows of the space shuttle! It’s also known as the same glass used in Pyrex®. Each straw is properly inspected throughout the manufacturing process and before it ships to you.
MEET THE MAKERS
Strawesome was founded by Daedra Surowiec in 2009 who designs and hand-makes all their glass straws. Soon it turned into a family business that since has been working towards sufficient awareness and action to forever eliminate the need for single-use plastic drinking straws. Their mission is to provide the world’s most artistic, eco-friendly, and health-conscious drinking straw.
This is how they describe Strawesome:
“In the beginning, there were plastic straws everywhere and people thought this was good because straws helped suck things up faster and easier without messes. You could find plastic straws almost anywhere a drink was served.
But soon plastic straws were found in places that were not so good. They were found used and thrown away along streets, on the beach, and even in the waterways. Used plastic straws were everywhere. But it got worse.
Plastic straws were found in the bodies of animals that lived out at sea (like in turtles’ noses). That was terrible to discover, but then something unimaginable and worse was found….the Pacific garbage patch! It was a huge collection (like hundreds of tons) of plastic things floating on the ocean the size of Texas!
Someone did some research and discovered that millions of straws every day were being used once and then thrown away. And most everyone didn’t even realize what they were doing. Who’s great idea was this? But it got worse.
Plastic was discovered to be toxic and non-decomposable. It was both unhealthy AND not going anywhere, EVER! Yikes!!! Everyone was in a panic. It seemed hopeless. Many cried. It was a dark day….
And then something unexpected happened. A creative glass artist made a straw from glass. Huh? A glass straw? What is that? Is it a bean shooter? Is it a crack pipe? No silly, it is a straw you drink from. Kinda like all those plastic ones you use all day long, but these are non-toxic, can be used over and over again, and look way cool like art.
Oh, I get it. That’s a great idea! Freaking brilliant! I can’t believe no one thought of this before. Since I don’t want to use plastic straws anymore, can I get a glass straw? Can I get a bunch of them for my family and friends? Can I get long ones, short ones, bent ones, and colored ones? Please? Pretty please?
Yes! Of course! We would love to! How about we work together and spread the word to everyone we know that there’s a solution to this plastic straw problem and make the world a better place in our lifetime? Sound like a good idea?
Yes! Let’s do it!
So Strawesome was born and people on earth lived happily ever after with their glass straws and healthy planet.”
“No matter which Strawesome glass straw you choose to be yours, it is a beautiful piece of art hand-made by yours truly! I hope you enjoy your glass straw as much as I did creating it.” - Daedra
