The war on straws is heating up, and with good reason. Plastic straws are a major and totally avoidable source of waste. Fortunately, there’s a great alternative: pretty much any other material.

Stainless steel straws have been a mainstay on Kinja Deals for years, with thousands of our readers buying tens of thousands of straws. Just a few days ago we saw an 8-pack for $11.

The classy among you or the Moscow Mule-obsessed can upgrade to finishes like copper. I have this set from Viski.


I prefer my metal straws like my Matchbox Twenty: bent, but countless straight options are also available, and most sets include cleaning brushes.

Moving on, we have my favorite straws: glass. I’m a big fan of this set from ECOLunchBox, but you can find glass straws on Amazon for significantly cheaper.

Well, this is the last straw. Perhaps you’re not worried so much about the environment as you are about your own life and the lives of your loved ones. Fear not, Softy Straws has you covered with BPA-free silicone straws. Even better, the included squeegee is a lot more effective than the brushes typically packaged with reusable straws.
