“After 31 years as a Dental Hygienist I discovered that I was always adapting mediocre products to help my patients with dental problems such as teeth sensitivity, staining and erosion issues.  I felt compelled to provide a product for my patients that was safe for them and the environment,” says Cyndi Sladics, mother and founder of Simply Straws. “Talking this over with my family we all agreed it was time to make a product that I was confident to recommend and know it was the best of the best for my patients. We took my knowledge of science and health, my husband’s love of creating, my son’s youthfulness and my daughters’ passion to protect the environment to provide for you our reusable drinking straws. A solution to a problem that effects all of us.” Simply Straws – reusable glass straws

Plastic Straw Facts

More than 500 million disposable plastic straws are used in the United States every day and would fill more than 127 school buses daily, or more than 46,400 school bus loads per year. (40ft. – long buses)*

*The amount of disposable straws distributed for use in the US were provided by straw manufacturers estimates. While this estimate may sound high, many environmental groups believe that these numbers are low, as it does not include straws that are attached to juice boxes and milk cartons.

Make the choice to not use disposable straws; in doing so, you will be choosing better health for you and reducing the amount of waste and little going into our landfills, oceans, lakes, rivers, and countryside.

Some plastics slowly leak harmful chemicals into everything they touch. Whether it’s through your one-time use water bottle, children’s toys or household products, we know that Plastic Sucks!

Plastic doesn’t biodegrade, it photo-degrades, which means the material breaks into tiny little toxic pieces. That means that every piece of plastic that has been made still exists in some shape or form!
