Living green is truly rewarding, as you are not only saving the planet but also looking after your health. We love green smoothies, apple ciders and lemon waters, but drinking them can be dangerous for the enamel of your teeth. Solution? Drinking with a straw.
Each time you use your glass straw equals one less plastic straw ending up in your landfill. Think about it, how many times have you reused a plastic straw?
The answer is probably zero. Drinking with a straw is so much fun, and when you use one in glass it does not leach toxins into your drink. If you drink coffee or tea, no need to worry about staining your teeth. On top of that, glass straws look much more elegant and gives a certain class to a drink. Often, the straws also come with a brush, so no need to worry about that. Here below are just two examples of suppliers of glass straws, there are plenty more to discover.
