Strawesome Glass Straws for Greener Sipping

Can a drinking straw be eco-friendly, safe and pretty? Daedra Surowiec, Milford mom of Adam, 12, and Luke, 7, thinks so.

The former architect is the owner and artist behind Strawesome, a family-run glass straw company. She creates different-sized and colored straws for anything from kids cups to bubble tea to cocktails.

“My kids love them,” she says. Luke even ate his first food, a mild green smoothie, through one. Surowiec says her company was born out of her concern over toxic materials in everyday objects like plastic straws – and as a way to maintain her artistic side as a stay-at-home mom.

“Plastic doesn’t degrade or it ends up on the ground and gets washed into our waterways,” she notes.

Not these straws. And they’re made of borosilicate glass – the strongest commercial glass available. “Even if a kid bites as hard as possible on a glass straw, they’re going to hurt their mouth before they break the straw.”
