Why I love glass straws + Simply Straws GIVEAWAY!

Why I love glass straws + Simply Straws GIVEAWAY!
Heather Nicholds, C.H.N.

I post a lot of videos and photos of my smoothies, and a lot of the time I get asked about the glass straws that I use.

I get them from a company called Simply Staws, and I use them to sip smoothies, water, even lattes!

I love them because they make sipping things so much fun, and – most importantly – they allow me to avoid single-use plastic straws. Not to mention, these straws are gorgeous and attract compliments wherever I take them…

So, several years ago, I made a pledge against plastic straws, and have never looked back! When I go out for a smoothie, I always try to take my own bottle and straw to use.

Pledge against single-use plastic straws! Show your love for your health and our planet <3

Plastic Facts

Simply Straws tells me that more than 500 million disposable plastic straws are used in the United States every day and would fill more than 127 school buses daily, or more than 46,400 school bus loads per year. (40ft. – long buses)

Also that the amount of disposable straws distributed for use in the US were provided by straw manufacturers estimates. While this estimate may sound high, many environmental groups believe that these numbers are low, as it does not include straws that are attached to juice boxes and milk cartons.

Some plastics slowly leak harmful chemicals into everything they touch. Plastic doesn’t biodegrade, it photo-degrades, which means the material breaks into tiny little toxic pieces. That means that every piece of plastic that has been made still exists in some shape or form!
