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?

Your HALM also gets additional strength from the ratio between wall thickness and inner diameter.
WHAT IS THE DIFFERENCE BETWEEN HALM THE GLASS USED FOR HALM AND OTHER GLASS?

WHAT ARE THE BRUSHES MADE OF?
> HALM is a plastic-free overall product - Of course, this also applies to our versatile cleaning brushes. These are included with every set and are offNatural bristles.
Due to the diameter of our HALM drinking straws, it is currently not possible to hygienically clean them with a material of plant origin - we have therefore opted for the bristle of the Chinese bristle pig.
We are still looking for a plant-based alternative, but currently cannot offer a vegan brush that meets our quality standards and approaches to sustainability.
[THE HALM STORY:]
HALM was invented to bring more flavor to your drinks and less plastic to the environment.
[HOW DID IT START?]
In 2015 when the founders traveled to Southeast Asia and visited the Thai island of Koh Phayam they quickly noticed that loads of plastic had washed ashore on the beach. They embarked to organize one Beach clean-up and filled sacks of plastic waste within two hours - a total of almost 4000 liters, which really shocked them.
For them it was clear; change what is happening and started looking for alternatives from paper to metal to bamboo to straw. Eventually they realized that glass was the best alternative to plastic and founded HALM. Glass is reusable , tasteless, easy to clean and hygienic.
[FROM THE FOUNDERS:]
THE JOURNEY GOES ON
We want to rid the world of the disposable plastic straw.
But there is much more:
We want to generate awareness for the entire plastic problem, to educate it and finally to bring about positive change in the way people think and act.
With our special editions, we already support a wide range of international NGOs. We will continue to invest in innovative initiatives and projects in the future and promote other products that tackle the plastic problem with us through cleanups, awareness-raising, research and education.
The plastic straw has become a symbol of waste. Now with HALM we are HALM a symbol for sustainable quality.
Did you know 3 billion plastic straws are used every day? It's quite a crazy number which means 3 million kilograms of plastic; a huge global footprint. We've been using different alternatives for a long time; silicone, bamboo etc and now glass. While all of the alternatives have their good points and bad points, we feel that glass is another very good alternative. Glass straws are reusable, long lasting and flavor enhancing so whatever you're drinking will taste great!
