Stainless Steel Straws

I like to drink smoothies pretty regularly.  For some reason they taste better when I use a straw.  It's just more fun that way too.  But I don't like wasting all those straws.  I started out reusing the plastic straws a few times.  Then I found some heavier duty plastic reusable straws at the store.  Those worked just fine, but I also am trying to use less plastic.  Plus, even heavy duty plastic does wear out after awhile.  I love Amazon.  It's kind of addictive.  Anyway, I did a search for reusable straws and found these.  

I was so excited when they arrived on my doorstep.  Our UPS lady driver is becoming a familiar face around here.  The Monkey gets excited when he sees we have a new package.  I was a little worried when I took them out of the package that they would be too short to use in the quart jars I use for smoothies and my drinking water, but they are perfect.  I like that they have the curved feature too.  

The Monkey took to them just fine also.  If that face can't sell these things, I don't know what can.  My only warning is to be careful not to bite down on the straw.  The things are stainless steel, remember?  Also, make sure you rinse them right after using them in any drink other than water.  For a good cleaning just buy some cheap pipe cleaners.  Enjoy not wasting your money on throw away straws and not throwing away waste that is not healthy for our beautiful earth.
