Stainless Steel Reusable Straw, Review and Giveaway

Mulled Mind
Stainless Steel Reusable Straw

I was a little hesitant at first to use a stainless steel straw, thinking it may taste metallic. Not at all. What is so cool about the metal, is when I have a glass full of ice water, the straw picks up the coldness from the ice and makes the straw really cold. Nothing like drinking a cold drink through a cold straw. Totally new sensation! You don’t get that will cheap plastic straws, and I am saving the environment by not continuously throwing straws away.

I asked Heather Melling, owner of Mulled Mind how she came to make stainless steel straws and a product she would like to add to her store in the future.

We started making straws when I was out of a job looking for work. I hate being idle, so I always find a project, usually involving making something. I saw all these cheap stainless steel straws coming out of tubing factories in china, and I wondered if I could just make some myself. Once I did it, I found that I could make them cheaply enough to sell them on to others. There was a hole in the market for handmade, ethically made, straws and I also provide the option of custom widths and lengths, which no one else does. The one product we would really like to be able to offer is bent straws. “

Heather puts the straws in a nice drawstring bag so I can store it when I am not using it, which so far hasn’t happened yet! The kids hound me to drink out of my cool straw!
