One Small Green Change: Reusable Glass Drinking Straw

June’s One Small Green Change is to switch to a reusable glass straw.  It’s kinda big deal because I normally go without. I got used to not using a straw during summer historical performing gigs. 

Beth of My Plastic Free Life and Lisa of Retro HousewifeGoes Green both rave about their unbreakable Glass Dharma straws. I thought, “That’s cool for you and straw loving people but I can mostly do without.”
However, there are times when using a straw makes life easier (Hi super thick shake! I’m talking to you.) Straws are a disposable that I can easily replace with a reusable. It will also save me money. Therefore, I kicked myself in the tush and got a Glass Dharma reusable straw.


Husband says my straw reminds him of a chemistry pipette.

  1. I’d love to use this hint, but just knowing how stuff sticks to — and doesn’t easily rinse out of — the inside of regular drinking glasses, I’d be afraid of what was living and growing inside that straw since I couldn’t get my hand inside and clean it properly. How do you clean the straw well?

  2. The glass straw comes with a cleaning brush. I have two. I carry one with me and run it through the straw when I’m finished using it. I keep the other cleaning brush in the kitchen and use it if I hand wash the straw with soap and water when I get home. Most of the time, I pop the dirty straw in the dishwasher to clean it.
