Environmentally friendly: Stainless steel straw (8 pcs.) for $3.77
Plastic bags are already being slowly banned from everyday life, straws and more could soon follow. In order to reduce the plastic waste that we produce every day, we need to switch to recyclable alternatives. These include this stainless steel straw variant, which is available from China.

We already had this foldable stainless steel drinking straw here before. At that time, some criticized that the silicone tube inside and the closures on both sides a) were less practical to clean and the drinking straw less beautiful overall. That’s why we now suggest this variant.
Never buy (or throw away) straws again
With a stainless steel straw there are actually only two important questions. First: Does it work? And second: What is the quality like? You don’t really need to know more. Maybe even the size: the straws are 21.5 cm long with a diameter of 6 mm.
Functioning here means: can you drink from it sensibly? And it works well here, just like a similar sized plastic straw. With the foldable version this was a bit more difficult, because the hose had a smaller diameter. In addition, the metal simply feels better than the silicone closures. Beside the bent straws there is also a straight version for almost the same price. In addition, there are different colors, but they are chosen randomly.
And the quality? We bought an identical version of the straw ourselves (although not from an online shop) and are satisfied. A K.O.-Kriterium would be sharp edges on the metal, which do not exist here. Fortunately there is no unpleasant metallic taste in the mouth after or while drinking. Since it is stainless steel, theoretically you have something from the straws forever, which are of course also suitable for the dishwasher. A brush to clean the straws manually is included with each version.
The idea isn’t new at all, metal drinking straws have been around forever. With a probably coming ban of the plastic version they should find however still more sales. If you want to buy a few cheaply, you will find the right offers from China here. And maybe that really means never having to worry about straws again for the next party, because you always have some in your house.To the gadget
