Will a glass straw break if I carry it in my bag?

by Mimmi Sandstrom |  | 3 comments

As we get asked this question over and over we thought a good way to answer it is through a blog post for everyone to read, before even having to ask. So, here it is!


Developing our glass straws

We didn't want our glass straws to be too thin as this could cause breakage more easily. However, after much sipping we realised that a glass straw too thick made the drink harder to sip.
Hundreds of sips later we finally came up with (what we believe to be) the perfect width...2mm! It's thin enough to provide an awesome drinking experience, yet thick enough not to break easily.


Enough talking...can I carry the glass straw in my bag or not?!

Yes, you sure can...and you should! seastraws are made to be carried everywhere you go so you won't need to sip through a single-use plastic straw ever again. To make it easy for you to carry the straw in your bag we include a FREE straw pouch and cleaning brush with all of our online orders. 


Check out our full collection of straws to find which ones suit you the best. If you can't decide, simply go for The Ultimate Combo as it includes one of each of our straws. The perfect gift for yourself, your friends, and our planet!

    I carry my seastraws around constantly. I have 4 which is awesome to leave one always at work, one in my glovebox, and one or two at home or in my handbag! I also dropped one on a concrete floor the other day and it didn’t break at all- no chipping, nothing! Stoked with the sturdiness of these bad boys!

    When I first heard about glass straws I was wondering how sturdy they were as I’ve only been using the metal ones. Glad to hear they’re sturdy enough to carry around. Will definitely get a glass straw now!
