Eco at Heart Stainless Steel Drinking Straws {Review}

ecostraw3We are big smoothie and shake drinkers. So, I’m a little embarrassed on how many straws we go through on a monthly basis. I kept thinking there had to be a better solution and one that was not just good for my family but great for the environment too. Then I learned about the Eco at Heart Stainless Steel Drinking Straws. These straws have already saved us money and a bit of space from having to keep all those disposable plastic straws around in our kitchen. These are completely BPA free making them a fabulous alternative.ecostraw2

This set of five comes in pack of five which also includes a handy cleaning brush. The straws are 3/8″ wide and 8.5″ long. The wide size I really like because it makes drinking smoothies easy without any sort of strain because most straws are sometimes a little too small for such a purpose. These straws are stainless steel so I would recommend only using these for cool beverages for obvious reasons. Iced coffees are great with these straws but hot ones would probably render you getting burned. I was worried if these would make my shakes taste off but they don’t. There’s virtually no odor or odd taste. I sometimes put these in the freezer to use later to keep what I’m drinking colder longer and that works out fabulously!

I would recommend when giving these to children to use, to make sure they aren’t wiggling around too much because steel would probably hurt and could chip a tooth! That’s really the only downside I see to these straws and there’s even a word of caution on the back of the packaging that warns of this! If cleaned right after use, you shouldn’t have any issues keeping these clean and looking great. But if you don’t the handy little brush that’s included helps tremendously. These straws are dishwasher safe as well.

If you aren’t happy with the straws, the company offer a full money back guarantee. Whether you are looking for something like this for yourself or for a friend, I don’t think you’ll be disappointed. The pricing isn’t bad at about $15.00 for 5 straws especially if you factor in the re-usability, ease of cleaning, and the good for the environment these products and the company that’s created them is doing!
