Every day, 500 million plastic straws are thrown away in the US - it is time to make a change! GoSili Reusable Silicone Straws are made from nontoxic, 100% European-grade platinum silicone* and can be used over and over again. These straws will allow you to enjoy every sip of your favorite dring, all while reducing your plastic footprint. And these straws come with an aluminum travel case for on-the-go sipping. GoSili straws are soft and flexible, but strong enough so they do not collapse when you are drinking. Won’t melt in your drink like a paper straw. Won’t hurt your teeth like a stainless-steel straw. GoSili straws are designed with maximum durability in mind, while also being easy to clean! Because they are translucent, you can easily see when the straws are clean. They are dishwasher safe, can be washed by hand (no brush required!), and can even be boiled to sterilize. *Unlike other grades of silicone, European-grade silicone is held to the highest of standards and does not allow any kind of fillers to be added to the material. It is sustainable, recyclable, stain-resistant, hypoallergenic, and has no open pores to harbor harmful bacteria.
