Whilst reusable drinking straws are a great option, a common issue is the hygienic and taste disadvantages of some straws like metal metal, bamboo or hard plastic straws. Metal conducts heat, silicone attracts dust, bamboo wood cannot be safely used in hospitality and hard plastic is not environmentally friendly.

For hospitality glass straws are by far the best solution, provided they are of good quality, i.e. strong, with consistent mouthpieces, easy to clean and the right size for your drinks. Glass straws are taste-neutral, they do not conduct any heat and are very easy to clean in the dishwasher. Their transparency also makes them elegant and aesthetic.

Why should you purchase HALM glass straws compared to other straws made of glass? Unlike HALM straws, other lower quality glass straws are out there on the market which just don't offer the safest and most sustainable drinking experience you can get with HALM!
