Sure - even glass can break under extreme conditions. But in this case you can dispose of it in the waste glass container with a clear conscience and give it a second life.
WHAT DISTINGUISHES HALM STRAWS FROM OTHER ALTERNATIVES LIKE METAL, BAMBOO, STRAW ETC?
- All alternatives to plastic have their advantages and disadvantages and are preferable to disposable straws. in thecomparison However, glass clearly wins as THE alternative.Glass is tasteless, of high quality and is at the same time the most hygienic of the reusable materials. For example, you can see immediately whether a Glass straw is clean, and you can say the same about a stainless steel straw
If a straw from HALM should break, it can safely be put in the waste glass container. Borosilicate drinking straws cannot do that. Their melting point is higher and they either have to be brought to the recycling center or end up in the hazardous waste dump.
Our HALM drinking straws but are extremely stable, so you will most likely pass them on to your grandchildren. You can do that with edible alternatives, raw pasta, straw and co. rather not do.
Also: who wants a gin and tonic that tastes like pasta after 10 minutes and lots of noodles that end up in the residual waste?
