I already talked about ditching the single-serving water bottles both for health and environmental reasons. To take things one step further and minimize not only your plastic use but also your garbage, stainless steel straws are a great alternative.
When I bought them initially, I wondered how they would work. Would I chip a glass by mistake? Would they feel weird while I was drinking my favorite beverage? After my first use, all of my concerns were alleviated. It’s actually quite nice to have such a sturdy straw and they’re so lightweight they don’t go clinking around the glass.
It’s key to stay hydrated and using a straw is sometimes quite helpful when you’re on the run.
So try these (or something like them) out and let me know what you think!
