Plastic drinking straws suck, figuratively as well as literally, because they’re made of polypropylene, which is number 5 among the plastic identification codes and not accepted by most recycling centers.

GlassDharma’s drinking straws are made of borosilicate, the strong kind of glass used in vintage Pyrex. Think about how tough your old pie plate is; that’s how strong these straws are. They leach no plastic toxins and can be used over and over again; in fact, if they ever break, GlassDharma will replace them for free.
