Glass Straws ARE safe!!!

One of the first and most common questions I get asked about Strawesome is “glass straws, aren’t they dangerous?”.

I suppose that’s a fair question. Aren’t nasty plastics and chemicals dangerous too? That’s like everything else in the kitchen being dangerous like your measuring cups and drinking glasses. Yes, glass straws can break, this is true but it’s highly unlikely. Strawesome creates these beautiful straws using the worlds strongest glass! It’s the same glass they use to make Pyrex (c) which is made from borosilicate glass. It’s not only the strongest glass commercially available, it’s the safest too, and comes with a lifetime guarantee. This glass is sooooooooo strong that you can’t bite into it, and who would want to anyways – yikes. Biting glass doesn’t do it for me. You could break the glass if you chose to bang it against a hard surface or dropped it aggressively to the ground but that would happen with any glass items really.

If you’re using your beautiful straws for delicious smoothies, refreshing juices and other beverages as they are intended, you’ll be just fine. I use mine everyday and haven’t had a break yet. I also put them through the dishwasher with no problems at all, just keep them separate from metal objects. Easy peasy, lemon squeezy as my niece would say!

Safe for kids? Of course, the creator of Strawesome’s children have been using the straws daily and haven’t had any dangerous encounters yet.


So they keys to remember about the safety of these stunning straws are:

  • Made from borosilicate glass, the safest + strongest glass commercially available!
  • Comes with a lifetime guarantee – we stand behind the product which is unlike any other glass product you can buy.
