There are many plastic straw alternatives, ranging from metal to paper to glass, and pretty much everything in between. Let’s explore some of these.
These stainless steel straws have silicone tips in multiple colors and come with a cleaning brush.
You can also opt for this set from Yeti which includes two full silicon straws and a pouch.
I know this sounds like a terrible idea, but after reading a lot more on it, these glass straws are the ones that I personally like best for replacing plastic straws. They are shatter resistant, BPA free, after-taste free, non-toxic, etc. You can clean them in the dishwasher, but these straws also come with a little cleaner (and pouch).
Nature’s Straw are made 100% from wheat. They are strong, eminently biodegradable. Hay! Straws are right up this alley, being made from 100% hay. They are great disposable plastic straw alternatives – although I don’t think Nature’s Straw would be fantastic for someone with gluten sensitivity.
They are made out of real little bamboo reeds. They come in a wide range of sizes – I liked NaturalNeo because they have a set of 10 with various sizes (and comes with cleaner and pouch).
I had to put this in because…titanium straws!!! How cool does that sound?! I mean, it sounds like they could life your car up for a wheel change or something, right? Like the other alternatives to plastic straws, they are colorful, come with a cleaning brush and case and look like fun to use.
