"[...] At the beginning, many could not imagine that this glass can withstand a lot and more robust is than any other glass straw . But the longevity after many months and even years, she has taught everyone better."

How a HALM drinking straw is made from glass

In its original form, a HALM glass drinking glass straw is a mixture of glass and mixture that is baked in the oven at over 1,200CC melted and then stretched by gravity. The unique recipe of the HALM glass drinking straw is based on the production of thermometer glass, as this is produced under conditions of the highest precision and durability. As a result, a HALM drinking straw also has a higher stability and can be subjected to extreme hardships, such as the hectic pace of business in the catering business.


More information about stability from HALM

After the HALM glass straw has reached its actual shape, it gets its typical rounded mouthpiece by flaming both sides, which leads to the unique drinking experience contributes. In the final step of manufacturing a HALM, the glass is "calmed down" in the oven, which eliminates tension and thus ensures the stability of a HALM glass drinking straw. The last process in particular is often missing from glass straw manufacturers from the Far East, which are therefore usually of inferior quality.

At HALM we make environmentally friendly glass production possible

Sustainability in glass production - is that even possible

That is why we have decided to work according to the highest possible environmental standards for industrial glass production. HALM glass production doesn't just pick up regenerative energy resources in the form of green electricity, but is even certified according to the Eco-Management and Audit Scheme (EMAS) . Our glassworks is the only glass production in Germany that carries this high-quality eco seal of approval. On its website, it sums up what the EMAS seal means: "A look at the list of requirements quickly shows: EMAS organizations are serious about environmental protection" And that's exactly how we understand HALM : We believe that a product is only sustainable if it is also produced sustainably.
Once a HALM drinking straw is finished, it has a service life of many years - in contrast to the disposable drinking straw, which is only used for 10 minutes on average before it ends up in the garbage. It not only withstands about 2,000 dishwasher washes, but is also extremely stable. If a drinking glass with HALM , the drinking glass is more likely to break. And should the HALM ever break, it can easily be thrown away in the old glass compared to a borosilicate drinking straw recycled and thus does not become an additional waste product.
