Free Shipping at Strawesome, and a GIVEAWAY!!

Strawesome truly is awesome! Several years ago, as part of trying to eliminate plastics as much as possible, I stopped buying plastic straws. But, like most everyone else, I love sipping from a straw! I didn't know there was such an alternative as glass straws available, until I found out about Strawesome from another blogger. I have been so impressed and happy with every single order from them!



Just as drinking out of a glass tastes better than from a plastic cup, sipping through a glass straw tastes so much better! Not to mention the health benefits of eliminating those cheap china-made plastic straws that leach questionable chemicals into your drinks. 



The glasses do NOT break easily, as the glass is the strongest commercial kind available. Nevertheless, each glass straw comes with lifetime free replacement warranty. Becky accidentally broke one of my straws, and getting it replaced was a snap.

Today and tomorrow (Tue and Wed), you can get free shipping for orders over $20 if you use the code SHIPJAN12 at checkout. Even though I just ordered from them last week, I am thinking about taking advantage of this offer and getting some straws as gifts for the kids - they, too, love them. Strawesome has tons of super cute straws in the clearance section, too.

I do not have any financial ties to this company, just truly love their products, and I think you would, too!

Edited to add: Strawsome has generously offered to give away one decorative “artist’s choice” straw to a reader in the US or Canada. These straws are fun practice styles that aren’t for sale on the website.

You can enter this giveaway up to three different ways:
1. Leave me a comment telling me what Strawesome product you would love to own. (mandatory entry). Remember, this is NOT the straw you will get in the giveaway (that one is "artist's choice"). My favorite is this one - ordered it for a friend last week and absolutely adore it.

2. Like Strawesome  on Facebook. Leave me a separate comment letting me know you did so.

3. Follow my blog. Leave me a separate comment letting me know you did so. If you already follow my blog, sorry, you're out of luck on this third option. :)

This giveaway will end Sunday night, January 29th.

  1. Sounds like a great product - I never knew that anything like that existed. One question: how do you clean them?

  2. Great question! When I just drink tea or water, sending the straw through the dishwasher in the silverware basket is enough. If I drink a smoothie, and I don't rinse it right away after drinking, I clean it with a little brush they sell for $2 (some sets include the brush for free).

  20. i dislike plastic and do not keep anything plastic in my home, and I love my glass straws and have been using them for years now--they are very popular and easily accessible in my city.

    Thank you for sharing awareness of them with your many readers.

  21. I love that they have smoothie straws - even if I was willing to use plastic, plastic smoothie straws can be hard to find. I think my favourite is the See-Thru Long Smoothie Straw.

    Thanks for the opportunity!
