A little Overlooked Straw

There’s a straw out there that is rather overlooked.  I actually always have one with me just in case of “emergency”. It’s the little cocktail straw.

Cocktail Straw

This is actually one of my biggest single use annoyances because they’re so small people don’t realize what a waste they are.  Those tiny plastic cocktail straws that come in every mixed drink out there, sometimes they even give you TWO!  I carry my own cocktail straw with me, it’s small and light and will fit into the carrying case with my 8″ regular straw that I use to drink water. I encourage you to refuse plastic cocktail straws when out to eat. One person really can make a difference and make other people think twice about single use plastics.

But, what if you’re having a party at home? Maybe it’s New Year’s Eve and you’ve got a house full of guests enjoying food and drinks. We created a set of 6 cocktail straws just for this situation! They are decorated in 6 different colors so that each guest knows which drink is their own. Brilliant!  This set is my favorite hostess gift to bring because it’s something they can use for years to come, while that bottle of wine will probably be gone that night (and you may or may not remember drinking it!).

To celebrate the upcoming new year, I’m giving away one set of 6 cocktail straws.  Comment on this post and we’ll choose a random winner on December 26, 2013. We want to ship these out to you so you can enjoy them on New Year’s Eve!

  7. Just got my first one and bought some as gifts. So excited to have them (and give them) and that they can go in the dishwasher to kill all of those germs this season can bring. Thank you for this awesome idea!

  79. I love these straws, this is another fantastic idea that you came up with. I would love to have a set of these when entertaining my guests, I know this would make a great conversation piece. If I can help save the environment one straw at a time and spread the word about your wonderful company that’s a good thing for all!
