This wiki has been updated 24 times since it was first published in July of 2018. With many cities, states, and companies banning the use of disposable plastic drinking straws, more people are looking for environmentally-friendly alternatives. We've rounded up a list of the best reusable options in a variety of sizes, colors, and materials, from glass to silicone to stainless steel, that will help you reduce your carbon footprint. When users buy our independently chosen editorial choices, we may earn commissions to help fund the Wiki.

3. Softy Straws Silicone

Editor's Notes

September 11, 2019:

At this time, we have selected the Klean Kanteen Flex Tip as the choice that’s hard to beat, as these combine the excellent durability of metal straws with the comfort of silicone models. They’re extremely versatile, allowing for use in regular cups as well as some reusable tumblers and travel mugs. And as with most of the best sets, every order arrives with a brush, so you can get them squeaky clean. As for other metal options, we decided to keep the Yihong Rainbow on the strength of their beautiful coloring, but it’s important to note that their metal construction means they aren’t great for kids or the clumsy. For those who’d prefer glass, we kept the Hummingbird Clear Bent. They’re surprisingly robust, if slightly pricey, and won’t impart any unwanted flavors into your beverage. Finally, we kept one bamboo model, from NaturalNeo, even though the included brush may not fit into all of the straws. That’s because the sizes naturally tend to vary — if you must have uniformity, you might look at silicone, glass, or metal.

Special Honors

FinalStraw 2.0 Opinion is divided when it comes to the FinalStraw 2.0. To some, it’s both too expensive and too hard to clean, but others love the interesting and collapsible design. The company uses eco-friendly production methods, though, which is a definite plus.

Simply Straws Classic Single If you only need one and not a plethora of straws, you might consider the Simply Straws Classic Single. You can choose the color and length and even personalize it with up to 26 characters so everyone knows to whom it belongs.

The Last Straw by Stephen Webster It costs a pretty penny, but The Last Straw by Stephen Webster is a clever and unique option that is engraved with the recipient’s name. Boasting sterling silver construction, it should last for many years to come, and part of the proceeds go to ocean preservation work.
