I call them Zero Waste Straws. My borosilicate glass drinking straws are sleek and elegant. Crystal clear, easy to clean, and extremely durable! Crafted from lab-quality materials in the USA, Happy Hollow Glass straws are designed to withstand the thermal shock they may be subject to, such as extreme heat from commercial dishwashing equipment. They have been known to bounce off the floor, but there’s no need to test the theory. I do remind customers that they are still glass, while I beat them on my bench like drumsticks as a demonstration of their strength!

I’m excited to be writing this right now because The Aviary has found me again after ordering my 14mm bubble tea straws several years ago, back in 2018 I believe.

I’m incredibly excited to work with them again and provide their beloved cocktail straws once more!

DON’T WORRY – I will be updating inventory just as soon as possible. There were some major site issues for a minute. Thanks for your patience. 🙂

Why GLASS Straws? The truth  {and science} behind the question! + (Video Update)

Here’s a new little video to help demonstrate the durability of this Happy Hollow Glass.

This is for those of you whom already think I’m crazy with all this glass straw talk. The first two drops were from about 24″ and the final two drops were from a standing position!

I hope that this will inspire you to continue learning what a big difference these little glass straws can make and give piece of mind that they are very strong for their purpose! 🙂

THIS is soda-lime glass.
A very cool green (soft) glass water bottle up-cycled into a sweet drinking glass – ahh… saved from the recycle bin! That’s handy!

– If customers are NOT informed of this “NOT RECYCLABLE” fact – literally tons and TONS of perfectly good soft glass could be ruined for good… and its only fate at that point is waste.

BOROSILICATE glass should NOT be recycled!
