HELLO AND HAPPY SATURDAY!!
I wanted to tell you about a new innovative company that is WAY ahead of the times when it comes to the old saying “Reduce, Reuse, and Recycle”. This one family took matters into their own hands and created a variety of glass straws with jars to help diminish the use of plastic straws. Just like water bottles, there is a proliferation of plastic straws. Our lands and oceans have become inundated with this pointless plastic creation. I found it quite inspiring to think that for years nothing has been done to mitigate the issue, until this one family made it their own personal issue and developed a brand called..

In 2011, the Sladics’ family began “Simply Straws”, a reusable drinking straw alternative to the common plastic straws. With a passion to educate the public on the effects of plastic pollution, and a commitment to work with organizations minimizing plastics-we began.
“After 31 years as a Dental Hygienist I discovered that I was always adapting mediocre products to help my patients with dental problems such as teeth sensitivity, staining and erosion issues. I felt compelled to provide a product for my patients that was safe for them and the environment,” says Cyndi Sladics, mother and founder of Simply Straws. “Talking this over with my family we all agreed it was time to make a product that I was confident to recommend and know it was the best of the best for my patients. We took my knowledge of science and health, my husband’s love of creating, my son’s youthfulness and my daughters’ passion to protect the environment to provide for you our reusable drinking straws.
“A solution to a problem that effects all of us.”
Together we have collaborated to form “Simply Straws”, where we have consciously chosen to care. Our products are reusable, sustainable, durable, biodegradable and handmade with intention in USA. Our colors are non-toxic, our materials bpa free, our sleeves made from fair-trade, organic hemp, flax, and cotton. Our web hosting and printing powered by eco energy, we use non-toxic dyes and fsc certified 100% post consumer recycled paper for business material. All packaging is compostable.
Why should I buy a Simply Straws product?
The reason Simply Straws began was to provide a safe, healthy, BPA-free alternative to the plastic; a straw that’s reusable, environmentally sustainable and durable enough to last a lifetime. We choose to make our straws and products from one of the healthiest and most durable materials available.
BISPHENOL A (BPA)
Bisphenol A is a chemical building block used to make polycarbonate plastic and epoxy resins. Styudies have linked BPA to homrone disruption, increased breast and prostate cancer cell growth, and early onset puberty, and obesity. Remove and replace.
Plastic Straw Facts
More than 500 million disposable plastic straws are used in the United States every day and would fill more than 127 school buses daily, or more than 46,400 school bus loads per year. (40ft. – long buses)*
What’s the story on the covers for the straws?
Their straw sleeves are made from sustainable Hemp, Flax and Organic Cotton. They were extremely particular when choosing their fabrics for the straw sleeves. Organically grown Hemp & Flax are a renewable material and natural pest/disease resistant, which makes it a natural choice for preserving our environment! Hemp is considered a “grass”; known for incredible strength, durability with natural anti-bacterial properties. This material resists odors and mold naturally! Organic Cotton or Sustainable Cotton embodies versatility, strength and beauty, while making sure the land and crops are not introduced to toxic pesticides. It is easily cleaned and the longevity of the fabric is superior.
How do I clean my glass straw?
Your glass straw is dishwasher safe. We recommend after every use to rinse with clear water and either place in an upright container (utensil holder) or place in your antibacterial hemp sleeve for protection. When necessary use the appropriate size Simply Clean Brush for a spotless, immaculate and pristine straw.
What if I break my glass straws?
Simply Straws offers a Lifetime Guarantee Against Breakage that applies to the glass straws only-Retail Purchases. They are so confident that Simply Straws glass drinking straws are rugged enough to handle daily life and use, that they will replace any broken straw without customization.
