Stainless Steel Drinking Straws Review + Giveaway

We drink a lot of smoothies in my house, and with little ones this means straws.  We go through a lot of plastic straws!  Cheap enough, but I always feel bad tossing them because I know I am throwing away money as well as adding to a landfill somewhere.  While I'm not super green, I try to do my part to reduce waste and re-use as much as I can.  So, when I got the opportunity to try the stainless steel drinking straws by Eco at Heart, I was so excited!
These stainless steel straws come in a set of five and also has a cleaning brush.
The straws are standard height, but a bit bigger around.  I was concerned they would not fit in my tumbler, but they just fit!
Easy to toss in the dishwasher as well as wash in the sink, these straws are low maintenance, which I love.  I also am thrilled that I do not have to toss them after each use or buy more after a month of smoothies.  They are sturdy and well made.  They look nice after many uses and are a definite conversation starter.

Unfortunately, the straws do not bend, to the disappointment of my children.  They are also not safe for hot liquids as they heat up and become a burn risk.  The edges are rounded off, but I still worry about them cutting one of my rambunctious kids should they fall while holding the cup when I'm not looking or some other freak accident.  So, I do not let my kids use these straws right now.  

I wish I was more thrilled with these straws.  I want to love them, but I can only say I like them.  However, for an adult, these are great and I would feel comfortable recommending them - just not for kids.

You can check them out and get your own here!

I do get to give away one set to a lucky reader!  If you want the chance to try them for free, comment with your favorite staw- friendly drink.  The winner will be chosen at random on October 2.
