Although our glass straws LOOK delicate, they're much stronger than most household glass and are strong, durable and safe.  And no, they will NOT break if you try and bite them.
There are 4 main things to consider when choosing your GlassSipper.  Length, diameter, bent or straight, plain or adorned.  Our best sellers are 8" regular decorated bent straws, but the choice is yours.  Hope this blog can help!

We finally found a strong and sturdy case that can fit in your backpack or purse.  Made of bio plastics (compostable in some cities) it fits all straws up to 9".  But we also love our cloth pouches, which are lighter and don't take up as much room.  No need to leave your sipper behind when you go out!
