Personal Milestone

August 16, 2015 by Daedra Surowiec

Brian and I recently hit a milestone in our lives, our 20th class reunion from high school!  I learned some interesting things at our reunion gathering, both personally and professionally. I take a Strawesome straw with me everywhere I go (mostly because Brian gets on my case if I forget one!) and when you have one you can learn new benefits from using glass straws.

Where All the Color Comes From

August 16, 2015 by Daedra Surowiec

I love when customers are inquisitive about products and how they are made, after all I’m the same way when I shop for products!  This post will address one of our most common questions about our straws, where does all that color come from?

I’m Not Perfect and I Love It

July 1, 2015 by Daedra Surowiec

There’s some thinking out there that perfection is best and it’s ironic because no one is perfect. In fact, none of us are exactly alike, even twins have differences. And being different is actually what gives Read the rest of this entry »

Plastic Sucks No Matter What

January 15, 2015 by Daedra Surowiec

I remember when the whole BPA-free craze began and honestly it doesn’t seem to have slowed down very much since it first arrived.  BPA-free has become a HUGE marketing tactic all over the place.

I was reading this article in the Washington Post the other day and it reminded me why we can’t trust any plastics. The choice is clear when it comes to the products we use to feed ourselves (straws, water bottles, baby bottles) and store our food, and it’s NOT plastic.  I look forward to the day when consumer demand has eradicated the plastic container industry altogether.

Keep educating yourself and together we can make this change!
