Kick your plastic habit with Hummingbird glass straws. These straws are safe for you and for the environment.


A variety of straw styles are available. Clear straws are available in bent, straight and extra-wide straight sizes. Choose from a single straw or a pack of up to four. Prices range $7–20. For something a little more interesting, straws are available in different colors or with unique toppers including glass turtles or frogs. The straws with topper attachments cost $20 each. Each set of straws comes with a brush. Or order an extra pack of straw-cleaning brushes for $5 to keep your straws clean. You can also place straws in the dishwasher.


Straws are shatter resistant and made with borosilicate glass, so they are safe for kids. They are made in the United States. They are also safe to use with hot or cold beverages.


Take your straw on the go to use at restaurants that still use plastic straws. Hummingbird even sells a carrying case for your straw made with machine-washable, natural hemp.


Shipping is free on orders more than $50.
