Our Glass

Why Choose Our Straws?

Let’s get a little technical about our glass,

Our glass straws are made from a specific grade of Soda-lime glass, which is chemically inert and recyclable. The surface of the glass is non-porous and smooth which makes it ideal for cleaning. It’s a food grade glass and is regulated by the federal Food & Drug Administration (FDA). Glass containers are considered “indirect food additives” by the FDA. The FDA has determined that both borosilicate glass and soda-lime silicate glass are Generally Regarded as Safe (GRAS)

Strawhopper glass straws are reusable, super durable, Kid-friendly, dentist recommended, Dishwasher safe, ethically sourced in the USA and manufactured in Canada, good for hot and cold beverages…oh and were just genuinely nice people!

Our glass is BPA-free, Phthalate-free, lead-free, and completely NON-TOXIC!

Fact: We will NEVER sell coloured glass. Why?  When coloured glass is manufactured, it creates a chemical reaction with the heavy metals that gives it colour. This process causes a lot of air pollution! It’s the only way colour glass is made, so we say. NO WAY!

The other benefit of glass straws is “clearly” evident.  No pun intended, of course you can see they are clear. LOL  They won’t come apart in your drinks. You can tell if they are clean by looking at them.  Reusable and recyclable glass is far more environmentally friendly. You can wash and reuse glass straws, you won’t be contributing to additional waste. 

Our packaging is certified Carbon Neutral and made in Canada! All our promotional materials are printed with non-toxic dies and are made with Certified FSC 100% post-consumer recycled paper (KRAFT PAPER). We also have Zero-waste shipping policy. That means we reuse boxes from suppliers and we try to upcycle as many boxes we find around town!

We hope to create the smallest environmental impact as possible. Were still evolving and learning all the time!  Something else you should know is that purchasing a glass straw from StrawHopper helps us give the most too non-profit organizations. How? We are a part of the 1% for the planet.
