Steel straws

When it comes to sustainable material, stainless steel straws are the go-to option. The metal has odor-resistance properties and is the most durable material for straws. Stainless steel options are also the most in the market due to their thermal conduction properties. A cold drink is best enjoyed through a metal straw, because it keeps a clear and refreshing temperature for the drinkers.

Glass straws
