Not a morning goes by where Miss LadyBug doesn’t ask for a straw to go with her glass of milk or orange juice.  For a couple of years, I kept a supply of disposable straws in the house for her drinks despite being green in so many other aspects of our lives.  About two years ago, we started making the switch to glass straws and haven’t looked back – now the trick is finding quality glass straws that will work for our family and these glass straws from Hummingbird are just what we needed!

What did I think of the Glass Straws from Hummingbird?

I really love the philosophy of Hummingbird when it comes to glass straws – to bring products that are high quality and committed to bringing greener living to households everywhere!  I received two beautiful amber colored glass straws and we are in love!  They are definitely sturdy (made from borosilicate glass – think Pyrex) and the glass itself is quite clear and free from blemishes, creating an elegant look that everyone will love!

Seeing as though Miss LadyBug is five, sometimes things get dropped, but so far with multiple encounters with table to floor height drops, these glass straws have held up beautifully!  I like that slight bend in the straw, making it easy for my little one to use the straw without having to stand on her chair, or try to hold the cup lower in her lap.

These lovely straws are available on their site in an assortment of colors and designs – even some whimsical “critters” that kids will adore!  I also appreciate the little brush they included for cleaning the straw, especially when I drink my morning smoothie with one!

The Verdict

If you are looking to add small ways of being green to your life – you will want to make switching to glass straws one of those ways!  It is easy to do, over a lifetime a great savings and they look great, too!  Learn more about the Hummingbird Glass Straws by following them on Facebook, Twitter and Instagram!
