Plastic straws are dumb. Paper straws are less dumb. Now, stainless steel straws are pretty terrific.
I’ve been using ‘em for months at home and at work, and I love them. (Before you ask, no, it doesn’t make my water taste like metal.) Using these straws have not only been a cheap way to help out the environment but they also make fun sounds when they clink around in my cup.
This set of eight (4 straight and 4 bent) comes with two cleaning brushes and is just $4.
