Epica Stainless Steel Drinking Straws

Packaging of strawsIf you, your children and guests use — and throw out — plastic drinking straws on a regular basis, these reusable stainless steel ones will pay for themselves in no time. Plus, they're healthier, kinder to the environment, and just plain cool to serve drinks with!

Better for You
You shouldn't have to worry that the straw you're putting in your mouth might be damaging your health. But that's exactly what might be happening if your straw is made of plastic containing toxic chemicals like BPA, phthalates, etc. A much better choice is food-safe stainless steel.

Better for the Environment
How many hundreds or thousands of plastic straws have you and your family sent to the landfill in the last year alone? Be part of the solution, not the problem, and switch to a stainless steel straw that can be reused year after year.

18/10 Stainless Steel Won't Rust, Scratch, Chip or Break
The same metal that high quality dining and cooking utensils are made from, this strong alloy is exceptionally resistant to corrosion, wear and tear. You can expect it to look just as good years from now as it does when it's brand new.

Smart, Bent Design
Looking to give your cocktails, shakes and smoothies a fun upgrade? Sip them through stainless steel that duplicates the look of a bent plastic straw even down to the rings around the bend. An angled top is also easier to drink from.

Cleaning Brush Included
These straws are dishwasher safe, but in case you want or need to wash them by hand, they come with their own cleaning brush. Featuring a stainless steel handle and nylon bristles, it's also the perfect size for cleaning sippy cup, sports bottle and thermos straws.

Straw in useI am always getting a fountain pop when I am out and about. I seem to always get the one plastic straw that has been bent so there is a hole in it. With the Epica Stainless Steel Drinking Straw I never have to worry about getting a bad straw. I also like that the steel drinking straw seems to make my drink colder while I am drinking it. A few years back my family started recycling and we love products that help to cut our every day waste down. The Epica Stainless Steel Drinking Straws are very easy to clean and can be stored in my kitchen draw until I need one. When I first started using the Steel straw my friends and family would laugh and look at me weird but soon realised that my straw never broke. I watched a few friends over this past weekend having to drink straight out of there cups with out the lids on because they had broke their plastic straw and with in a few minutes bugs were getting into their drink yuck!.
